To live in Western North Carolina – among well-worn mountains, waterfalls, valleys, rivers, hidden creeks, forests and open meadows – is to be constantly immersed in and awed by beauty. We devote ourselves to its preservation, not just because we want our children and grandchildren to know what we know – but because we simply can’t imagine a world without this landscape.
Formerly known as Conservation Advisors of NC, we’ve been helping environmentally minded owners preserve open spaces, and protect the integrity and value of their land since 1998. Our team bridges the gap between landowners, land trusts, biologists, and land planners, so together we can ensure the long-term protection of the scenic beauty, wildlife habitat, water quality, and other natural attributes of the Southern Appalachians. Through conservation easements and more sustainable development, we help owners preserve their beloved and valuable lands, achieve estate, state, and federal tax benefits, and ensure that the pristine beauty of Western North Carolina endures for generations to come.
As longtime residents and conservation professionals, we have extensive knowledge of Western North Carolina’s most beautiful open spaces and properties with outstanding natural features.
Our team will find the conservation-minded buyers who understand the value and importance of your preserved property.
Our seasoned team can help you create a conservation strategy that makes sense for your present and future needs. Working with conservation experts, land trusts, and developers, we can help you protect your property through easements, or set aside a small number of developable sites within a largely conserved property.
We’ll connect you with the more than 23 land trusts in North Carolina who help us protect property by either holding land or establishing conservation easements.
