THE LAND – Surveyed into three distinct lots of 40+ acres each, the property is being sold as one offering.

The landscape on site is slopping hill side with elevations of 580 to 830 FASL.

The northern 2/3rd’s of the property are primarily forested by hardwood species while the lower 1/3rd along the stream is maple, beach and other hardwoods mixed with spruce, fir, pine, hemlock and cedar. The last commercial harvest was done on the land about 7-8 years ago.
