i want opinions on this conservation idea. buy farm, timberland and other natural places. use the land to make profit. lease farmland for renewable energy development and put conservation easements on the farms but allow forestry, renewable energy like say 10% of the pasture is leased out for solar panels. the areas where wetlands are or used to be are restored and protected with easements along with the rest of the property. only organic farming will be allowed in the easement restrictions. timberland will be protected with a conservation easement that only allows sustainable forestry and recreation and a certain amount of cabin foot prints where a cabin is allowed to be built for a second home like that national forest summer homes program. its the american dream to own a cabin in the woods. all the land before the easements will be thoroughly looked at and restored. for example a 500 acre property is to big for one family to own so there should be two options here, allow it to be subdivided into smaller 100 acre farms or allow a 10 acre development zone where a cohousing community can be built in order to prevent land hording. for a while the land holding company would do farm lease to own, solar leases, wind leases, logging timber sales, grazing leases, cabin leases, home leases and any other eco friendly revenue generation like camping and other recreational use fees to make a huge amount of money. the more land owned and used the faster and faster land could be bought and preserved for these uses but prevent oil, gas and mining uses along with cookie cutter housing subdivisions. also look at ted turner who owns millions of acres that he preserves. even re acquire the severed mineral rights. what are your thoughts on this idea? should the cabin foot prints be sold off at the size of a quarter acre or included in the big timberland and leased to the cabin owner? the conservation easement will only allow a certain amount of cottages for second home use. should the timberland be owned by non profit community forest with a cabin lease program? also the smaller properties bought would permit a house or cabin to be built in the conservation easement before selling it to a land steward. should there be a restriction on these private lands that only allow a person that will actually work the land to be able to own it like they do with some protected farms excluding the vacation second homes? i got a great business plan and other business ideas that will allow me to build this machine. is there a such thing as a for profit land bank? land bank that holds, revitalizes and resells the land to a good steward? a community land trust is another idea but its not a nice feeling renting as opposed to owning the land outright. if you have any great ideas or suggestions to this let me know and also any business formations or ownership or other ideas for this let me know.
