he majority of the property is forested in varying stages of growth. The timber has been managed for years and a current updated inventory shows approximately 764,340 boardfeet of timber, International ¼” log rule. The forest is in good condition and will continue to produce valuable timber and forest products long into the future.
There is also about 20 acres of open meadow on various portions of the property and a spruce plantation that is about 10-11 acres in size and about 10 acres in more mature pine plantations. A small 1/3rd acre pond is found on the north side of Cowles Settlement Road at the south end of the spruce plantation. The pond has not been stocked by the current owner but easily could be a viable, fun pond to fish with the kids and grandkids. Hills Creek also flows through the property and is a nice slate bottom stream that flows year ‘round.
A good internal logging road/trail system provides access throughout, mostly on the east side of Cowles Settlement and Stockton Roads. Hills Road provides access north of Cowles Settlement Road.
