Conservation easements or other protection programs

Seller is a land trust so a conservation easement will be placed on the property upon sale. General terms of the permanent easement are set but some specifics are negotiable with the buyer. It will allow continued farming, hunting, limited forest management along with a home site and farm-related outbuildings (location to be jointly determined). The land trust holding the easement will conduct an on-site visit to monitor the terms of the easement at least once-a-year. We respect property owners' rights and will notify the landowner in advance to schedule the visit each year. Land trust staff are available to discuss the proposed conservation easement with prospective buyer.

Additional aspects

Current land lease runs through the end of 2017.
