ABSTRACT
The article discusses the benefits of using conservation easements for financial planners. Conservation easements, typically through the use of charitable land trusts, can be a powerful tool for estate planning and tax planning for clients wanting to protect significant natural land from major change. Under a conservation easement, a landowner places restrictions on the development of the property by giving veto power over the land to a land trust or a government entity. Easements allow land owners to get the most out of their land assets. INSET: Useful Web Sites on Conservation Planning.
