Why consider land preservation today?
The fact that you and your family may have voluntarily protected your land from harmful development for years may not be enough . . . Subsequent owners of your property may not appreciate the land the way you do and may decide to sell for development . . . High estate taxes may force your heirs to sell all or part of the land that you have managed so carefully . . . The income tax deduction available for a qualified donation is a powerful tool for land protection and financial planning . . .
