Land - Stockbridge, VT
South Hill Forest offers privacy on a secluded mountaintop and easy access to a region rich in recreational opportunities. There are exceptional views of the Green Mountains in many directions. A home or cottage could be established to capture these views. A number of hiking paths meander among the mature hardwood trees to an upper ridge complex where views expand in all directions. The western portion of the property has its own access with frontage on the Tweed River. This cold, clear river is excellent for fishing and swimming. From the river, the property rises sharply in elevation with two gently sloped benches along the way. From the higher bench, the views widen to include a sweeping vista from the south to the north. The forest consists primarily of northern hardwoods. Along the ridgetops, the timber resource is generally well-stocked, mixed species stands with average stem quality and nice aesthetics. The remaining sections have richer soils and species such as maple dominate. In most of these areas, stem quality is excellent with the overstory trees roughly 75 years old. With sugar maple being the dominate species, there is potential to convert a considerable portion of the forest to a sugarbush. Timber data from the forest management plans indicates a potential of 12,000 gross taps.
