Public-sector planning for private land has not, by itself, addressed the wide range of land use problems in the United States. In the last decade, local and regional land trusts have emerged to compliment and supplement those actions of public-sector planning directed toward land conservation and preservation. There are indications that the growth of these organizations will continue. The institutional aspects and conservation activities of these new players in the land use policy game are worth looking at in determining what opportunities exist for satisfying the goals of public and private interests. -Authors
