An Important Message about Syndicated Conservation Easements

You may have read in the news about a small group of bad actors who are using conservation easements solely for their own personal financial gain. In the conservation community, these fraudulent agreements are known as syndicated conservation easements. The Land Trust for Tennessee condemns these syndicated conservation easements and does not participate in these types of transactions.

Read our full statement about why they must be stopped.

Achieving a Balance

We all need places to live, work, shop, and congregate, but some places are irreplaceable. We believe development and conservation must work hand-in-hand as partners to best serve our state and our citizens.

The time for conservation is now.

You can’t put a price on what we are saving today for tomorrow.
