Conservation Easement Registry

Conservation Landscape

The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry maintains a mandatory statewide registry for conservation easements held in Maine (33 MRSA, §479C).

All holders of conservation easements on real estate in Maine must establish an account with registry, register their easements and confirm the monitoring status of their easements. The annual account renewal and reporting deadline is March 30.

New accounts can be established and new conservation easements registered at any time of the year. The registry has been set up on-line for account holders easy use and management of the holder's information. Account holders are able to manage and edit your information on line and download it for off-line use.
