difference between trust deed and land trust

Just been studying up on all these terms and I’m stuck on these two. Don’t know how/if they’re related but somehow after reading over the both of these it looks like they are very similar at least.

OK, I get to be Mr. Professor!

These are two different things.

Trust Deed: (aka Deed of Trust) Used to secure a mortgage note to a specific property.

Land Trust: Used to hold the title (sometimes to obscure ownership). It can envelope a Trust Deed.

OK, better google these to confirm what I’ve said, so you don’t end up investing from prison. You know how hard that can be.
