Landowner Resources

Below are links to several documents that may be useful to landowners who are working with CLF.  A template for a conservation easement can be downloaded, along with a shorter “restrictive use” easement.

You may also download Form 8283, which is required for tax purposes if a landowner chooses to sell an easement for less than its appraised fair market value or to donate it outright.  In most cases, donations in part or whole of a conservation easement are fully tax deductible.
