Grajewski Farm - Huntington Mills
North Branch Land Trust (NBLT) has recently completed a conservation project in Huntington Mills, Luzerne County. The 210-acre Grajewski farm is a generational family farm dating back to 1917. The farm encompasses active agricultural fields, mixed deciduous forests, ponds, wetlands, and streams which feed a nationally registered wetland. Owned by Bob and Susan Grajewski, the property hosts a high number of native hickory trees and contains known bat habitat. This farm, with its high conservation value, is now protected forever with a Grant of Conservation Easement which is a private, voluntary agreement with a local land trust which permanently limits the uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. Lands placed into conservation easements can continue to be farmed, hunted or used for other specified purposes. The lands also remain on county tax rolls, strengthening local economies.READ MORE ABOUT THE PROPERTY >

Conservation Subdivision = Better Land Use
Many of our planning methods and zoning codes are based on archaic land use guidelines that have not been updated for many, many years. Because of this, we are very inefficient in the way we develop our open space. These inefficiencies lead to burdensome expenses that the municipality often times cannot cope with. Conservation Subdivisions represent a better way to develop our land that can ultimately reduce municipal expenses.READ THE FULL STORY >
