Profit

Profit is the right to take part of the soil and produce of the land - this may be:

 

Coal
Fruit
Timber
Other

 

Profits are similar to an easement except that the holder of an easement may not take anything.

 

The difference between an easement and profit is that an easement confers only the right to use another's land.  Profit confers the right to remove the soil or products thereon.
