It is comprised of black cherry (33%), soft maple (31%), hard maple (21%), red oak (9%) and white ash (2%).This portion of the property is enrolled in the NYS Forest Tax Law 480-a program which provides a significant reduction in tax assessment in exchange for proper forest management administered by the landowner, a forestry consultant, and overseen by the NYS DEC. The property has been continuously enrolled since 2001 and FORECON, Inc. has been managing the timber. All of the improvement and/or herbicide work that was needed over time has been done. No other improvement work is currently required under the management plan. The next timber harvest on this portion of the ownership is currently scheduled for 2028.The long-term forest management history has created the necessary network of roads, trails and log landing, making it easy to work at any time.

It is comprised of soft maple (38%), black cherry (32%), hard maple (19%) and red oak (8%). This parcel is not enrolled in the 480-a program, so it can be harvested at any time.
