The Cutting Edge of GREEN : Trends & Amazing ECO-News Series

Many times, early in the morning, I like to go for a quick run around the World Wide Web. It's good to get a quick runperspective on trends and attitudes. It seems that each time I do this from my elegant cabin in the mountains right here in Asheville, I am amazed at the wealth of cutting edge "GREEN" news "out there"...

This week, among other "amazing scoops in the ECO-news" I discovered something that could be of huge value to those of you interested in conservation real estate. It's a comprehensive online database of land conservation. The Trust for Public Land (TPL), a national conservation organization unveiled it just this week.

If you are looking for a definitive source of information about land conservation at the state and federal level, including acreage protected and dollars spent, now you can find it HERE. 

Of significant interest to me and possibly to  those of you who are Eco Certified ®Real Estate Consultants or EcoBrokers ®the website and it's information was created as a direct response to the numerous questions posed by policy makers, members of the media, and conservation leaders about the growing field of land conservation in America.

This trend is something  Land Specialists like me are noting...

...and so it meets my  "amazing GREEN news" criteria.

According to sources, "The data has taken five years to collect and will be updated as new information becomes available."

By the way...pet-friendly land and real estate investment go hand-in-hand...or should I say...paw-in-hand

Now that is one "Eco Friendly Pooch".  What a great source of information.  I am going to have to make our lawmakers aware of this site --as well as my colleagues.

Joan~

I agree with you...it's a super source of information... This web site covers land area conservation activity across the U.S.A....and "grew out of the many requests The Trust for Public Land has received for data to understand the "context" for land conservation and the growing conservation finance movement."

This source tells us

  • How much land has been protected in our state?
  • Which state and federal agencies have protected lands in the state?
  • With all the new money being created for land conservation, what kind of impact are we getting?

All this could be of particular interest to real estate investors and brokers...

Glad you like this info, too...I like it because it is a national data base...you can go to Florida's Stats...and find out all kinds of data..

I am looking at North Carolina Stats on the web site right now...so interesting! Here's something those interested in real estate might find especially interesting...according to the Almanac..." Most conservation funding comes through State (as opposed to private) appropriations.

North Carolina  has a dedicated funding source for land conservation through our  real estate transfer tax ($2 per $1,000 of the value of the property). Of every two dollars generated from the real estate transfer tax, one-dollar goes to conservation, the other to local governments.
