DALLAS, December 12, 2012 - Here’s one way to consider land preservation for the holidays making the gift you give this year count.
A company called Highland Titles, said to be the world’s leading innovator in land preservation, is offering a unique and eco-friendly way to purchase a souvenir plot on a Highland estate in Glencoe Wood, Scotland.
Through the use of this souvenir plot, lands owners are also granted the legal use of the Scottish title of Laird, Lord or Lady.
Since the Highland Titles gift is all about land conservation your purchase also gives back to Mother Earth. Over the last thousand years the forests throughout Scotland have been destroyed by industry and farming. This new eco-conservation scheme and the selling of small plots of land helps to save the woodlands offering tree planting, maintenance and acquisition of land that is at risk for development.
“We have created a new approach to raising funds to support the restoration of destroyed woodlands and preservation of land at risk for development,” Stephen Rossiter, Marketing Director for Highland Titles says. “It is imperative that we conserve our remaining forests and replace trees that have been lost for the sake of biodiversity, wildlife, carbon sequestration and the enjoyment of future generations.”
Plots of land sold to individuals can’t be resold or developed.
The plot sizes range from one-square-foot to 1,000 square feet and can be purchased starting at $49.99.
When a person buys a plot of land or gifts it this year for the holiday they receive:
- The title of Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe;
- A full color folder containing all the documents;
- A legal title deed for land ownership on velum parchment;
- A Master Title Deed to change a person’s title on bank accounts, driver’s license and other ID;
- A map of Glencoe Wood and directions and instructions on how to visit and find your personal plot;
- Information and a pictures of Glencoe Woods and the conservation project;
- A bumper sticker to display the status of Laird, Lord or Lady.
Founded by Professor Peter and Laura Bevis, a biologist and accountant respectively, the Highland Titles concept was conceived in 2005 during a preservation project on their family estate in the Scottish Highlands. After creating 12 new wooded areas on family-owned land, they realized that to make a difference, they needed to purchase degraded land that was still capable of being restored to full health.
