Conserve Your Land, And Enjoy it Too

Have you been thinking about putting your land under easement but don’t want to give up control over it?  Do you want to get a tax break for conserving your land but still want to be able to use it for hunting, fishing, and trail rides?

Conservation easements have long been an effective tool for enabling landowners to preserve their property.  Unfortunately, many have shied away from diving in over concerns about giving up control over their land.  We have talked with many landowners who were worried they wouldn’t be able to continue doing the things they love if they put their lands under easement.

Luckily, you can add a conservation easement to your land and still continue enjoying many of your favorite activities!  Because of the way easements are written, landowners work with conservation organizations to determine which uses are and are not restricted on their property.  Because easements are largely used to prevent further development, activities like shooting, fishing, and riding are typically approved uses of the land.  Indeed, we have worked with landowners who put their land under easement and then generated revenue by selling access to their property for a range of sporting activities  In the end, they were conserving their lands and making a living by doing so!

If you’re interested in conserving your property, we invite you to contact us and we’ll help you find the solution best suited for your goals.  We look forward to hearing from you!
