Watch your grass grow

When you’re in a conflict with a landowner, a long history of written reports (even short reports) documenting visits to and viewings of the property can make a huge difference in court. Reports should include a visual inspection of the property, along with written documentation of the inspection – and they are required annually in order to be eligible for Terrafirma coverage. Click here for a refresher on other important details, such as what to include in a monitoring report.

Come hear more stories about land trust successes using Terrafirma at Rally: The National Land Conservation Conference in Minneapolis, MN from October 28-30, with workshops on insurance, risk management and Terrafirma stories.
