Enrollment in the NYS Section 480-a of the Forest Tax Law provides the owner with a forest management plan to help achieve investment goals, as well as a generous reduction in assessment, resulting in lower taxes. The management plan does not call for any forestry work to be completed during the next 15 years. Recent Timber Stand Improvement work was performed by the owner on roughly 26 acres in the southeast corner. An overview of 480-a is attached to this listing. A copy of the 480-a Forest Management Plan and Treatment Schedule is available upon request.
