In June 2011, The Land Trust recorded a voluntary conservation easement with Landowner George Nicolaus. This agricultural conservation easement conserves approximately 146 acres of prime farmland 0.5 mile west of the City of Chico’s Green Line. It has high value crop-type that has been cropped in the last two years (almond orchard) and the development pressure on the property was deemed high due to the precarious nature of the Green Line.
