*deep sigh*  My faith in the idea of the management of public lands in 
perpetuity is a little bruised since I moved West.  The Forest Service
and the BLM seem to be not the best folks to trust land to.  Have you
looked into the Nature Conservancy?  I don't know much in depth about them,
but they would probably be a source of good supporting legal advice for

who wants to think about trees & flowers, rather than lawyers & contracts,
but is willing to do the nasty work up front...then settle in to 
enjoy the trees & flowers for 1000 years or so...
