New York vacant land with abundant fields, mature timber, pond and views for sale. This property has a wonderful mix of open, woods with timber, pond and a spectacular view to the east from the east side of the property. The open land would make great pasture areas for farming and, with a little drainage work, would make excellent crop fields as well. The shear abundance of accessible road frontage on both the east and west sides of the property make this an ideal spot for homesteading or as a great spot for your future camp.The forest is dominated by hard maple, hemlock and soft maple with an estimated 375,550 boardfeet of timber based on a recent inventory by FORECON, Inc. A timber sale could be made at any time. In addition, the amount of mature hard maple in the forest would also lend itself well to a sugar bush for maple syrup production. There is also beech, hickory, oak and other species present that are producing mast that are keeping and holding the deer and turkey here as well.There is an abundance of deer sign throughout the property with major trails on all ends of the property. Former apple orchard areas and random apple trees on woods edges and hedgerows are seeing a lot of activity as there was a good apple crop in 2021. There are several field openings surrounded on 3 sides by forest that would make excellent secluded locations for food plots. In addition, the neighbor to the south has corn planted up to the boundary on the southeast side providing yet another great food source for the deer and turkey. A small pond on this portion of the property provides a water source as well and could easily be expanded to add one or more additional ponds in this area.The timber rights will transfer but the oil and gas rights are previously reserved and owned by Seneca Resources who used to own this tract. They have 2 gas pipelines that cross this property and gas arches at each end of the tract. The buyer will sign a Surface Use Agreement as part of the purchase that gives the property owner rights to recover damages to land, timber, etc., from the mineral owner should any other oil or gas development occur in the future.
