The parents of the current owners purchased this parcel over 30 years ago for both hunting and timber investment. Enrollment in the NYS Section 480-a of the Forest Tax Law helped achieve their goals, as well as a generous reduction in their assessment, resulting in lower taxes. The predominant sawtimber species found on the property include: hard & soft maple, black cherry, yellow birch, white ash, beech, spruce and fir. Some mature timber was harvested over 30 years ago before their purchase. Subsequent treatments under the plan included; non-commercial forest improvement cuttings in 1994, 95 and 99 as well as a light commercial thinning conducted in 1998. A required harvest scheduled between 2019-21 will provide the new owner with an immediate return on their investment.
