I want to plant native species on my NALT Conservation Area. What do you recommend?
We are working on some helpful resources for our landowners, so standby!
If you want a more involved strategy to steward your land, plant a pollinator meadow, tackle invasive species or more, we also offer Conservation Management Planning services.
Am I allowed to make changes to my property?
That depends on the terms of the Easement that is specific to your property. First, you will want read through the Reserved Rights section in your Conservation Easement. If what you want to do requires NALT’s approval as defined within the Reserved Rights, or you still aren’t sure, please fill out a Reserved Rights form, and we will get back to you.
Do I have to notify NALT if I plan on selling my land that has a NALT Easement on it?
We would greatly appreciate these updates for our records, and most of our easements require 30 day notice prior to any grant or conveyance of your property. You are required to provide the contact information of the new owners when you sell, so that we may welcome them to their Conservation Area.
In addition, your Conservation Easement may require a transfer fee to be paid to us upon the sale of the property; contact us or check your Conservation Easement to verify if it exists. We offer an initial free 2-hour Conservation Easement consultation to our landowners, but do not work with prospective buyers. If an easement consultation requires an extensive amount of our time and research to answer questions, or if you would like any mapping or drone footage of your property, we are happy to offer our contracted services.
Can I get a NALT Easement removed from my property?
No. A Conservation Easement is a legally binding document that ensures the land will be conserved in perpetuity. As holders of the Conservation Easement, it is our responsibility to ensure its terms are upheld forever.
