      Popular with neighbors, not a likely destination for those from afar, this forest tract features some mature stands, a brook and an opportunity to get off the beaten path. No marked trails.

      The highlight of this 30-acre parcel is the forest: our forester says the trees are all older than 80 years – some may be 150. For context: +/-150 years ago gets us to the Civil War! It’s a mystery why this parcel wasn’t logged before we got it: access is good and the timber is high-quality. Regardless of the reason, our plan for the next decade is to leave it alone.
