Conserving land and water is not all when it comes to the benefits that this world receives when speaking about conservation easements. In fact, through this process, a way of life is preserved – for the land, the wildlife, and for the next generation to be able to enjoy the gifts that Mother Nature has to give.
Being one of the most powerful – not to mention effective tools – conservation easements are the method to permanently conserve private lands located in the United States. The list is long and varied when it comes to the aid provided by conservation easements. Millions of acres of wildlife habitat and open space have been saved by keeping land in the hands of private owners in order to generate huge benefits for the public. The help to the general public comes in all forms: Financial, business growth, enjoyment, entertainment, hunting, fishing, etc.
A legally binding agreement that is completely voluntary, a conservation easement puts in place limitations when it comes to certain types of land use. They prevent commercial development from taking place on a specific piece of property in order to protect the land’s ecological worth, or open-space values.
When it comes to the innovative minds at Fay Ranches, their work goes a step further – helping owners make the right choices when purchasing land for their specific needs.
