Definition

From the Wikipedia:

"There are two distinct definitions of a land trust:

a private, nonprofit organization that, as all or part of its mission, actively works to conserve land by undertaking or assisting in land or conservation easement acquisition, or by its stewardship of such land or easements;

an agreement whereby one party (the trustee) agrees to hold ownership of a piece of real property for the benefit of another party (the beneficiary)." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_trust)
