Conservation Easement Documentation


BIO-Logic, Inc. has completed documentation reports for over 175 private land conservation easements in Colorado and New Mexico, from small family farms to ranches covering thousands of acres. We have provided documentation for conservation easements held by numerous land trusts, state agencies, and counties and municipalities. We provide Baseline Documentation Reports, Minerals Assessments, and strategic planning to help land trusts and agencies focus their conservation work more effectively. We are working with the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts to prepare a Minerals Handbook for Private Land Conservation in Colorado.


Baseline Documentation Reports document existing conditions such as surface and minerals ownership, improvements, and land uses. The report also documents conservation values protected by the conservation easement such as agriculture, wildlife, rare plants or special ecological features, scenic, historical, and other types of conservation values.


Minerals Assessments (“Remoteness Reports”) are required for conservation easements when ownership of mineral rights is split or severed from surface ownership. Minerals Assessments document the nature of the severed mineral rights, the likelihood of recoverable minerals occurring on the property, and feasibility factors that affect the likelihood of development of severed mineral rights. Our staff geologist maintains an extensive library of geologic resources including books, maps, and digital databases covering the State of Colorado . We confirm or research mineral estate ownership, geologic potential, and potential for economic quality and quantity of mineral resources.
