Property Description

The land is all forested, with terrain moderately sloping uphill from the road frontage to the higher ground at the back of the property. Here, the land levels out, but undulates in spots around rock outcrops and an occasional vernal pool. The terrain is easy to walk and quite compatible to recreational activities and future woodland management. Soils are well drained and productive in most areas; however, rock outcroppings are common and poorly-drained pockets are found where the land levels out to the north. Elevation ranges from 700' along Kelly Brook to 1,160' at the northwestern corner. A southern aspect prevails, with an intermittent stream nearly bisecting the land. The timber resource is the centerpiece of the property. Species composition is dominated by sugar maple, American beech, red maple, white ash, cherry and pockets of scatted, large-diameter white pine. Stem quality of the maple, ash and cherry is high, providing very good asset appreciation potential in the coming decades for these species. The timber resource is a classic example of a three-aged stand. Generally, three age classes exist: a younger age class of 25 years, a middle age class of 45 years and older age class of 75+ years. The maple resource density appears to support a small sugarbush opportunity with ±50 taps per acre possible. The slope is ideal for a sugarbush, as it runs down to the road and electric power. Timber data is unavailable, currently.
