Vermont Timberland Properties

With roughly 80% of Vermont being forested, chances are good that most all rural properties have a woodlot that could benefit by sound forestry practices and stewardship. In the past, foresters generally felt a woodlot needed to be at least 25 acres to be worthwhile developing and implimenting a forestry plan. However, the standards have changed and stewardship of a smaller woodlot can provide much enjoyment, provide firewood, possibly sugaring while improving the landscape. 

Timberland investment properties have been very popular over the 20 years as viable investment instrument with very good returns. Typically a timberland investment property can be anywhere from 100 acres to several thousand acres. Well planned and timed harvests can provide an income stream while increasing the overall future value of the timberland property. 

Whether your Timberland is by chance a portion of your Vermont property or intentionally an investment property, the benefits of proper stewardship add to the enjoyment and the future value of your land.

Beautiful vintage farmhouse on 135 acres in the heart of south central Vermont. A huge fireplace large enough to walk into will warm your heart on chilly winter nights. Nearby ski resorts include Mt Snow, Stratton Mountain, Bromley, Okemo, and Magic. Killington and Stowe are less than two hours away. Trails lead through the woods to Flood Brook and a cool mountain stream. Begun in the 19th Century and built up over the years, Timberland Farm has been in the same family since 1940 and now must sadly pass to another owner who will care for it in the same manner. Hardwood floors throughout, with plenty of space to host large gatherings or raise a family. Two out structures can be used as workshops for all manner of activities, such as woodworking, machining, or quilting. The farm has an entirely self-sufficient cabin in the back that can be used for guests, as a mother-in-law suite, or for rental income. There is also a self-sufficient one-bedroom apartment in the basement that can be used for the same thing. This is a rare opportunity to own a home that sits nestled in a forest of tall, lush pines, hardwoods, and maples.

Mad River Timberlands offers 652± acres of predominantly hardwood forest situated along the easterly flank of Mount Cobb between the Winooski River and Mad River in Moretown, Vermont. The property is less than 10 minutes from the town centers of Waterbury and Middlesex and is readily accessible from Routes 2 and 100B. Southerly portions of the property facing the Mad River valley are subject to conservation easements that permit ongoing forest management, harvesting, sugaring, and recreation while allowing for the construction of one 800-square-foot camp. A 15±-acre parcel directly opposite Ward Park on the Mad River is not eased. There are no conservation easements on the entire northern portion of the property facing the Winooski River Valley. The forest offers a hardwood timber resource dominated by sugar maple, red maple, and yellow birch with islands of softwood throughout the property. A fresh December-2019 timber inventory demonstrates 95% productive acreage with 4.0 MBF sawtimber and an additional 13 cords of growing stock and pulpwood per forested acre. Four ski resorts (Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River, and Bolton Valley) and Perry Hill mountain biking area are located within 10-30 minutes of the property.

An outstanding opportunity to purchase a portion of the legacy woodlands of John T. Hemenway. John was considered one of the pioneers of modern times for the conservation and stewardship of timberland. Through his long storied life John purchased over 5000 acres which is mostly now conserved. This 36 acre parcel is one of the very few that was sold privately. The land is gently sloping with multiple excellent building sites. The standing timber is a testament to proper stewardship. There is a year round brook that runs along the western boundary. Located just 2 miles from South Strafford Village, the property is easily accessed and an easy commute to Norwich/Hanover and the Upper Valley.
