Saving Family Lands: Challenges and Opportunities for Working Lands in Texas

Watch the Recording

Texas is losing rural land at a faster rate than any other state. With over 1 million acres of working lands having been lost between 1997 and 2012, many landowners are seeking a means to protect their land from a similar fate. This presentation will begin with an overview of current land trends in Texas using data compiled by Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute’s Texas Land Trends Study, and will suggest the use of agricultural conservation easements for facilitating permanent protection of working lands and their associated legacies. Options associated with conservation easements and the processes involved with their development and implementation will be discussed in detail.
