About This Practice

This guidance covers Practice 11H, which includes three elements:

  1. ⬤ Adopt and follow a written policy or procedure addressing conservation easement amendments that is consistent with the Land Trust Alliance Amendment Principles

  2. Evaluate all conservation easement amendment proposals with due diligence sufficient to satisfy the Amendment Principles

  3. If an amendment is used to adjust conservation easement boundaries (such as to remedy disputes or encroachment) and results in a de minimis extinguishment, document how the land trust’s actions address the terms of Practice 11J
