  TRUSTING IN LAND

Important habitat and critical

Scenic views, important habitat and critical farmland are now protected from development forever.

The Land Trust of Virginia has sent word to middleburgmystique.com that a large parcel from Clarke County will remain green. Approximately five miles from Berryville, in northern Clarke County, 165.7 acres are now permanently protected by the Land Trust through the donation of a conservation easement.

The property consists of approximately 18 acres of forest cover, of which more than 12 acres consist of high forest conservation values as designated by the Virginia National Heritage Program. Visible to the public from three roads, more than 64 percent of the property consists of prime farmland, important for agriculture sustainability throughout the county.

Donated to LTV by a Virginia family, this conservation easement eliminates three building lots and prevents any division of the property forever, further protecting the historic lands within the Mosby Heritage Area. Currently, the owners are working to convert most of the existing open fields into planted forest habitat.
