What is an easement?

Successful conservation easements are the result of a voluntary, thoughtful process. Each agreement is unique, tailored to meet the personal needs of the landowner and the special qualities of the land.

What are the tax benefits on a conservation easement?

Conservation easements may provide tax benefits as a charitable contribution

 

How can PPLT help?

Like you and your property, each voluntary conservation easement agreement process is unique. Contact Prickly Pear Land Trust to discuss your needs and circumstances. Together we can pass on our natural blessings – clean water, working farms and ranches, and wildlife habitat – for generations to come.

Since 1996, Prickly Pear Land Trust has worked with private landowners to conserve working farms and ranches, wildlife habitat, and other land of high scenic, recreational, and historic value. We work in Lewis & Clark, Jefferson, Broadwater, and Powell Counties.

Prickly Pear Land Trust is a community-based, non-political, nonprofit organization working with local landowners to protect working farms and ranches, clean water, and wildlife habitat through voluntary conservation agreements.
