Justipedia explains Trust Property

There are many different types of property that can be trust property, for example: land, cash, houses, jewelry, investments and many other types of property. In order to become trust property, all that needs to happen is that the grantor needs to put the property in the trust when it is set up.

The trust property can cease to be trust property if the trustee gives it to a beneficiary as per the terms of the trust. The property would then belong to the beneficiary.
