Book By Farm Bureau Covers Conservation Easements

The Landowner's Guide To Conservation Easements is a new book published by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF).

The book, authored by Steven Bick and Harry Haney, informs landowners of all the issues related to conservation easements. It includes an in-depth explanation of easements and their appropriateness; income, estate and property tax aspects; designing easement deeds and reserving rights; results of easement arrangements; and a process for informed decision-making.

"This book is unique from all other material published on the topic of conservation easements because it takes an objective look at this complicated issue from the perspective of a landowner," says Bob Stallman, AFBF president.
