"These days the ultimate second-home amenity is a slice of wilderness. And with a push in the past decade from increased environmental regulation and land-use laws, many developers are providing it, giving up large tracts of land to lure buyers...But how environmentally friendly are these projects? They appear to offer benefits for developers, homeowners and the public.
