Conservation easements allow landowners to preserve land in its natural state for future generations to enjoy and, in certain circumstances, can provide appreciable tax benefits to offset the potential burden of conservation.
Landowners can utilize a traditional conservation easement with various easement holders or may work with Fauquier County’s purchase of development rights (PDR) program.
