Easement Stewardship

Check out our new Easement Lands Guide for even more outdoor recreation opportunities! The lands we've highlighted are Conservation Easement Properties on land owned by towns, other organizations or individuals.

When you imagine a forest that is full of wildlife, you may imagine a forest that consists of really old and large trees. However, the largest diversity of wildlife will be found in dense thickets with trees no older than ten years old!

To help the Easement Stewardship team monitor thousands of acres of conservation properties, the Volunteer Easement Monitoring Program (VEMP) was started in 2016. Since then, the program has been gradually expanding.


New staff will help the Forest Society steward New Hampshire's special places, which include over 130,000 acres of important forest lands, water resources, scenic vistas, wildlife habitat and agricultural resources.

Charlie and Nanci Mitchell graciously hosted the Forest Society’s second annual gathering of conservation easement landowners on protected property in Gilmanton last weekend.
