What kind of property can be protected by an easement?

Any property with significant conservation values can be protected by a conservation easement. This includes forests, wetlands, scenic areas, historic areas, and mixed-use land that includes agriculture and combinations of other habitat. Land conservationists will evaluate the distinctive features of your property. You and the land trust will then determine which resource values merit protection through restrictions identified in the easement. Any property with significant conservation or open-space value may be the subject of an easement.
