Why We Like Land Trusts

September 21st, 2010

Written by: Bob Kiesling
In the late 1970s and early 80s a wave of land trusts began to form and ripple across America. By 2008 there were more than 1,700 of these organizations, and collectively they had preserved nearly 37,000,000 acres of important habitat, open spaces, greenways, corridors and parks. Much of the birth, growth and success of such non-profit organizations derives from public recognition that Government – be it Federal, State or Local – simply cannot be expected to conserve all the important landscapes our citizens have come to cherish. Because it remains the case, even in these times of widespread economic recession, that the pace of sprawl and development far outstrips the pace of land and water conservation, the role of land trusts is as compelling as ever. Ironically, while broad and deep downturns in real estate values have presented some great opportunities for land trusts to acquire key lands or purchase development rights, or be granted conservation easements, sources of funding (public and private) have also sharply downturned. » More: Why We Like Land Trusts

Historically, rises in the capital gains tax rate have tended to slow economic growth and reinvestment. This condition is known as the “lock-in effect” where investors avoid taxation by holding appreciated assets. » More: The Capital Gain Tax Rate Change for 2011 Will Present Challenges for Sellers
