The purpose of the SLCT is to save land as open space in perpetuity. A land trust is an organization that holds property and easements to legally establish protections for a given piece of land. There are two general types of land trusts: conservation trusts, primarily working toward the preservation of open space, forests and agricultural land, and community land trusts that focus more on housing and community development.
Conservation trusts focus primarily on acquiring lands of ecological significance and setting them aside for long-term preservation. Conservation trusts also hold conservation easements that restrict activities (such as development) and thus lower a land's taxable value. This mechanism provides tax-relief to landowners who voluntarily limit their rights to develop, degrade or convert their lands to other uses.
