    My immediate family has a large parcel of land in an area that has become a McMansion-ville. The sleezeball developers kept trying everything they could think of to get their hands on it, though it is NOT for sale. Finally, they had the land registered as forrest. There is a process involved with this, where someone from the forrestry service inspects the property. Once it is designated as a forrest, it prevents much "developed" land use but also decimates the tax burden.
