The focus of the Georgia-Alabama Land Trust is to protect land. We do this primarily by working with private landowners to secure land in conservation easements that will define the way the land can be used in the future. The landowners we work with come from all walks of life. Family farmers, real estate developers and even the US Government are our clients.
We support landowners who are working their land. Unchecked development – whether for high density urban housing or retail/multi-use – has a significant negative impact on the adjacent land. Impermeable surfaces, like parking lots, cause storm water run-off and destruction of waterways. Clear cutting of trees reduces canopy and destroys habitats for many animal species.
