Conservation Easements in Central Virginia

We often talk about the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) and the huge wealth of information that they provide to central Virginia landowners.  PEC serves an area from Charlottesville, northeast towards D.C. and the N. VA counties.  In a nutshell, they are committed to protecting and preserving the lands, viewsheds, historic features, and environmental wellbeing of our area.

Both buyers and sellers need to know about the depth of facts that can be found on PEC’s website, and in that spirit we’d like to link you to some fantastic maps (below) that they’ve developed, to show the lands that are protected under Virginia’s conservation easements.   Thanks PEC!

By County:

Albemarle

Culpeper

Greene

Madison

Orange

Rappahannock

Entire Region: 

Entire Piedmont Area Protected Lands

The way it works, when a landowner donates land to a preservation organization, it is protected from development forever (including family divisions for development). A conservation easement can also impact the value of a particular parcel. When you look for property in our area of Virginia, you might want to bookmark this page as a handy reference source to check the preservation status of available listings too.

Of course, it’s part of our job to assist our clients with access to all information about properties, so the protected status of the parcel is only one of many tools we use when we try to match buyers and sellers.   And PEC’s maps are great visual aides.
