Land Owner Fee Simple

Fee Simple Conservation

What is Fee Simple conservation? Landowners may also choose to donate their land to Cardinal Land Conservancy for conservation purposes. This option may be preferable to a conservation easement if there are sensitive natural resources on the land, if the landowner would like their land to be maintained as a preserve, or as part of estate planning. In Fee Simple Conservation, landowners do not maintain ownership, although some terms may be tailored to the needs of the donors and their families. In this scenario, landowners donate their land to Cardinal Land Conservancy, who will maintain it as a preserve, or transfer ownership to a suitable party.

  • Land is preserved in perpetuity and maintained as a nature preserve by Cardinal.
  • Landowners transfer title to Cardinal Land Conservancy.
  • Donors may be able to realize a tax deduction for their donation.
  • Provides ideal protection for sensitive natural resources.
