Conservation Easements Gaining Popularity

More and more property owners are donating their land to trusts to preserve the property.

"A conservation easement is a conveyance of legal interest in land, whereby a property owner gives or sells the development rights to a preservation group, like a local, state or national land trust. The landowner retains full ownership, but is bound to never develop it. And the easement applies to future owners of the land, ensuring perpetual protection."
