Farm Description

Edinburg Forest in the Great Sacandaga Lake region of New York’s Adirondacks is a quality sugar maple property and a “can’t miss” opportunity for sugar bush operators, timberland investors or those seeking an exceptional, large-acreage land purchase opportunity in popular Saratoga County. Property highlights include: a professionally-managed, highly-stocked timber resource with a Capital Timber Value of $752,200; high-value sugar maple stands comprise two-thirds of all standing sawlog timber value; 23,000 gross sugar maple taps for those individuals seeking a good maple syrup farm opportunity; and a desirable Saratoga County location which, combined with its unusually large acreage for this region, can offer a legacy-type land investment with a potential long-term upside well beyond its solid timber fundamentals.

Edinburg Forest is conveniently located within a half hour’s drive of Saratoga Springs and lies within an hour of the Capital District Region and Tech Valley. Albany is located 55 miles south and offers interstate, rail, and port services for global forest products markets. New York City and its metropolitan areas are situated 4 hours south, while Montreal is located 3 hours north. The property has 210’ of frontage on Fox Hill Road, a paved, four-season town artery. A gated woods road, suitable for general SUV traffic during non-winter months, extends for three-quarters of a mile into the heart of the property and provides good access for forest management, sugaring and future log truck traffic.

Edinburg’s deep, loamy, well-drained soils and sloping foothills terrain are an ideal platform for timber production, forest operations, recreation, kingdom lot options and sugar bush farming. There’s a high percentage of operable ground that is perfectly suited to growing world-class sugar maple and its northern hardwood associates. The property is well suited for a host of outdoor activities, including hiking, ATV use, snowmobiling and hunting, all of which are highly compatible with long-term forestry pursuits.

While sugar maple is the most common high-value species across the property, the forest offers a diverse host of natural associates including white ash (11% of sawlog volume), yellow birch (10%), other hardwoods (8%), softwoods (7%) and red maple (6%). Property-wide, basal area is 107.8 square feet (192 stems per acre) a level indicative of fully-stocked hardwood stands near or at A line levels. There have been two forestry entries over the past twenty years. The first was a harvest conducted across 100 acres just off Fox Hill Road. This thinning was completed in the early 2000s. The second thinning occurred in 2006 and spanned 100-150 acres in the northwestern corner of the property. The residual sugar maple composition and quality in this area is the foundation of this investment opportunity from the perspective of asset appreciation and future yield.
