Property Description

Maine timberland lot for sale.  Located in Amity, Maine is a 45± acre, surveyed parcel of timberland for sale.  The property would be ideal for a buy and hold parcel to add to your investment mix.  The land could also be a cabin or off-grid homesite in a rural part of Maine, known for its recreational opportunities.  It has very good access along Monument Road.  There is approximately 762± feet of road frontage which provides good access.  Old logging trails can be found under the tall canopy which make great hiking paths when viewing the property.

The topography of the timber tract is sloped.  The land rises from the low point of 540 feet above sea level to a high point of approximately 610 feet above sea level.  The soils that make up the site are predominantly silty loams that are described as capable of handling intense farming.  Roughly 2/3 of the lot has class 2 soils that would work well for growing farm crops.  The trees growing on this section of the lot are noticeably larger, straighter and in better overall condition than the trees growing on the roughly 13 acres that are characterized as class 7 soil.

The stand of trees on the property varies from hardwood stands to some mixed wood. The majority of the property having stands of hardwood comprised of maple, birch and some beach thrown into the mix.  Pockets of mixed wood with the majority of the softwood stems being fir.  The fir I observed appeared to be growing pretty well, especially in the area with the better soil conditions.  The property was last logged in 2012, and looks very good.  The old logging trails are easy to walk along throughout most of the parcel.

The Town of Amity is a small community of approximately 250 residents.  The area is very rural and is a border community with New Brunswick, CA.  Monument road actually terminates at a monument set on the borderline between the two countries.  The service center for the area is the community of Houlton where you will find healthcare, dining, retail and service businesses.  Houlton is the southern Aroostook center of commerce for the region.  If you are looking for an off-grid parcel of surveyed timberland, with great access, you will want to closely examine this lot on Monument Road in the town of Amity.
