Strengthening the defense of our conservation restrictions through TerraFirma

The Trustees of Reservations significantly increased our ability to defend the conservation restrictions we hold by recently enrolling in the Terrafirma Risk Retention Group LLC, a new charitable risk pool owned by participating land trusts that insures it members against the legal costs of defending conservation. It is available for all Land Trust Alliance member land trusts with conservation easements or fee lands held for conservation. Terrafirma is part of the Land Trust Alliance’s national strategy to build a formidable defense in ensuring conservation permanence and was designed in consultation with insurance specialists, attorneys, and land trusts across America. This is the flagship resource to permanently protect conserved lands, and it marks the first time that a conservation group has created a captive insurance service.
