Rounding Out the Boundaries: The Land Preservation Projects of Bob Anderberg and the Mohonk Preserve
When Mohonk Preserve
, a respected 8,000 acre land conservation organization based in New Paltz, NY, wants to expand its land holdings, they often depend on the services of a man named Robert K. Anderberg
He is a former trustee of the Preserve and currently general counsel of the Open Space Institute (OSI). [The Preserve recently lost another case involving an attempted land acquisition; see related story.]
land acquisition playbook includes purchasing the mortgage out from under a neighbor and foreclosing on them, setting up front companies to do transactions, buying land from someone who doesn't own it, claiming land by adverse possession (squatter's rights) and setting the Preserve's neighbors up for costly litigation, sometimes pitting them against one another.
There are many examples of this over the years where Anderberg
acted as land acquisition agent for Mohonk Preserve

As for Anderberg
, my prayer for him is that all his
unresolved karma comes to fruition in one moment, and soon too.

In June 2011, Mohonk Mountain House, a high-end hotel in New Paltz, NY, sold approximately 874 acres of its land to the Open Space Institute (OSI), the land preservation organization where former Mohonk Preserve board member Robert K. Anderberg is vice president and general counsel.
Planet Waves readers have heard of Anderberg before - he's the mastermind behind attempts to illegally claim large swaths of the Grandmother Land, where I take many photos, and put it into the hands of land conservancies.
In June, Brook Farm Project was informed by OSI
, in the person of Robert Anderberg
, that it would be shut down.
How come every time I write an article mentioning OSI and the name Robert Anderberg
, someone else is getting kicked out of their home, off of their land or being sued to have their property taken from them?
Seven years ago, Anderberg approached Jones, saying OSI wanted a working farmer on a tract of land in Orange County that the organization was willing to sell to him.
Those involved with Brook Farm
and the organizations supporting it say that Anderberg
is directly involved in calling the shots, as general counsel of Open Space Institute
In August, Planet Waves reported on a lawsuit that exposed how Anderberg, who serves as a land-acquisition agent for Mohonk, devised a scheme to purchase land from someone who the State Supreme Court ultimately determined did not own it.
I also reported how Anderberg, representing a land conservancy, once purchased a nonexistent interest in land from a former owner, then the conservancy tried to sue Pardini and Fink to take the land.
personally purchased her
mortgage from its holder, and after he
did so, took advantage of a provision allowing him to call in the note - that is, to demand that Haviland pay him back all at once.

I had never seen anything like it," said Robert Anderberg, OSI's General Counsel who was once a summer ranger for the Mohonk Preserve.
