The Southeast Land Trust also protects land through conservation easements.
Conservation easements are legal instruments recorded in the county's registry of deeds and are binding on current and all future owners. Land subject to an easement remains in private ownership and can be sold or gifted. The easement details the limitations on the use of the land, generally prohibiting additional residential, commercial or industrial development, and granting the holder of the easement, in this case, the Southeast Land Trust, the right to monitor and enforce the use of the property.
To date, the Southeast Land Trust holds conservation easements on more than 115 properties throughout greater Rockingham County, protecting more than 5,750 acres of land!
