Places Protected in the Islands

About

Overlooking Montague Harbour, the maturing forest on Dr. David and June Collins' property is often bursting with the sounds of songbirds. Red huckleberry, salmonberry and oceanspray provide habitat to the chickadees, wrens and sapsuckers that dance through the forest understory.  High above, the cedar and fir trees are shadowed by the wings of Bald Eagles and Great Blue Herons as they make their way between inland forests and their fishing grounds.

David and June protected the forested portion of their land with a NAPTEP covenant in 2009, ensuring future landowners will continue to be delighted by the diversity of life that appears at their doorstep.  By protecting their land, the Collinses, and any future landowners, enjoy an annual 65% exemption on their property taxes.  For more information about how you can protect your land while saving on your property taxes like the Collinses do, please visit us here.
