Simplified, a Tract is a parcel of land.

A tract of land typically refers to a large piece of land that is designated or identified as a distinct unit for legal, administrative, or surveying purposes. The exact size and boundaries of a tract of land can vary depending on the context in which it is used, but it generally implies an area of land that is larger than a single lot or parcel and may encompass multiple lots or parcels. Tracts of land may be used for a variety of purposes, such as agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial, or conservation purposes, and may be owned privately, by the government, or by other organizations.
