Protect Your Land
The Jericho Underhill Land Trust (JULT) works hand-in-hand with landowners who seek our assistance in conserving their property. JULT helps both landowners and town officials plan for a balance of preservation and development. This effort reflects the strong interest of our community in preserving open spaces for recreation, wildlife, agriculture and scenic vistas.
To realize this vision, JULT partners with municipal and regional entities as well as organizations such as the Vermont Land Trust, and diligently seeks funding from a broad range of sources. Such efforts enable JULT to employ a variety of land conservation techniques tailored to meet the needs of each landowner and the Land Trust, including:
- Conserving property directly through donation or purchase
- Acquiring conservation easements (legal agreements that permanently limit use of the land to protect its conservation value) through donation or purchase
- Providing advice to private citizens regarding the possible tax benefits of land conservation.
