THE NORTH AMERICAN LAND TRUST'S APPROACH TO CONSERVATION IS UNIQUE AND BASED ON PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE. THE TECHNIQUES WE HAVE PERFECTED, AND OUR BOARD HAS SUPPORTED, ALLOW FOR A THOROUGH EXPLORATION OF BOTH CONSERVATION INCENTIVES AND A NEW VISION FOR ALL PROJECTS, SURPASSING 450 COMPLETED PROJECTS IN 2015.
As a small organization with an effective group of specialists, the North American Land Trust is able to take on projects with a modest budget and still accomplish tremendous conservation and value to the landowners.

Since 1992, we have completed more than 450 projects protect more than 108,292 acres, in a wide range of states, including among others, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Michigan, Indiana, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

In the face of recession and environmental disasters, new opportunities are opening up for the Trust's unique program that:

  • support the need for alternative energy with opportunities for carbon sequestration and biomass uses for conservation lands;
  • understand the increased interest in organic farming adding another dimension to our planning;
  • provide economically viable conservation plans as an alternative to failed golf course projects; and
  • can provide stability in a sea of failed recreational developments.

While others are relying on regulation, we feel that incentives are the real answer to increased use of conservation planning.

Another major feature of the planning process involves a vision that goes beyond project design. The design concept is important and is carefully employed, but North American Land Trust also considers how the land will be managed in the future: what the project will look like twenty years from now.
