From the text ... 'Conservation easements are a voluntary, incentive-based approach to recognizing the public benefits provided by private forests. The land stays in private ownership and in productive use, while key 'conservation values' such as open space, fish and wildlife habitat, water quality, scenic beauty and sustainable forest management, are permanently protected.'
