Pleasant Brook Forest is a private and secluded recreational timber property tucked away in the Northern Adirondack Region of New York. The setting is remote and quiet yet still within 30-40 minutes of regional population centers. The property features a well-appointed, off-grid hunting cabin tucked away in the center of the property and over a mile and a quarter of scenic stream frontage along Pleasant Brook, an attractive tributary of the nearby St Regis East Branch. While enjoying the recreational amenities of the property, there is a long term, recently thinned maple, birch and cherry timber resource that is perfectly positioned for volume and value growth over the coming years.
For those seeking a large recreational property for snowmobiling, ATV riding, hunting, fishing, and weekend getaways, Pleasant Brook Forest has many key attributes. The property spans over a square mile of northern Adirondack forest and has a stream, a cabin, a good road system, and a diverse mix of habitat and woodlot opportunities. Pleasant Brook meanders slowly southward for over a mile through a beautiful boreal backdrop of open beaver meadows, willows, alders and spire-topped spruce and fir forests. This is a beautiful setting as well as a rich ecosystem which supports a variety of wildlife and bird species, including deer, beaver, muskrat, ducks, and geese. Rolling hardwood ridges make up most of the upland acreage on the western two thirds of the property. This area has a good network of trails and great deer and grouse habitat.
Pleasant Brook’s northern hardwood and spruce/fir timber has been managed under the supervision of a forester and there is going to be a lot of wood on this property in fifteen to twenty years. Species composition is made up of sugar and red maples, the birches, cherry, ash, beech and spruce/fir. The most recent thinning was conducted from 2009 to 2012 over approximately 356 acres. The remaining 169 commercial acres remain fully stocked and harvest ready for the next ownership.
