Land Trust & Conservation Easement Law Flow Chart

Land trusts and the conservation easements they frequently deploy to protect land are governed by a multitude of legal regimes.  For those advising and working with land trusts, dealing with multiple, and sometimes conflicting, legal regimes can be daunting enough.  Adding to the challenge is that many of these regimes are highly complex and technical, most notably tax law regimes, while others are esoteric and vary state by state, for example charitable trust law.

To provide a bit of guidance and clarification regarding the law of land trusts and conservation easements, I have put together a chart, which is accessible by the following link.  Admittedly, this chart is a work in progress, will have some mistakes and some omissions, but hopefully it will serve at least as a starting point in understanding how the legal regimes affecting land trusts and conservation easements interact.
