My interest in putting an easement on my land grew out of my belief that whenever possible, it is important to protect land from development.
My parcel provides water from a creek, a beaver pond, and a waterfall. It also provides about 6 acres of woods that have a variety of hardwoods as well as evergreen species. The remainder is old farm fields that are on their slow, but steady way to being a climax forest one day.
The variety of habitat meets the food, water, and nesting needs of many species.
It is my hope that more individuals and families will protect their land via easements.
