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.
Conservation easements may provide tax benefits as a charitable contribution
Even when deeds are signed and filed, and conservation easements are recorded, it’s not yet “conservation done.” Every field season, PPLT stewardship staff return to each easement property. We’re there to ensure the agreed-upon conservation values are being protected, and just as important, to build on our partnerships with the landowners and act as a resource for them. It’s something we look forward to each year.
You have worked hard to care for your land and want to pass on its integrity for generations to come. Rich soil, clean water, and wildlife habitat are precious today – and will be even more precious in the future. As the value of developable Western land skyrockets, more and more landowners turn to Prickly Pear Land Trust for tools to manage their land as they wish.
Like you and your property, each voluntary conservation easement agreement process is unique. Contact Prickly Pear Land Trust to discuss your needs and circumstances.
