SECTION 12260-12264



12260.  If the department determines that the proposed conservation
easement meets the eligibility criteria set forth in Section 12251,

satisfies the following selection criteria:
   (a) The nature of the environmental values proposed for
protection, and whether they can be monitored efficiently and
effectively.
   (b) Whether the parcels are likely to become isolated from other
areas maintained for key forest resources by development on adjacent
parcels.
   (c) Whether the landowner's management goal for his or her parcel
is compatible with the resource protections he or she is proposing.
   (d) Whether the landowner has developed, or commits to developing
by the time the easement is finalized, a management plan equivalent
to, or better than, a forest stewardship plan that governs management
on the parcel.
   (e) Whether a nonprofit land trust organization, public agency, or
other suitable organization has expressed an interest in working
with the department and the landowner to establish, hold, and monitor
the easement.
