Farm Description

Fletcher Hill Forest features productive forests, town road frontage and views of the Sugarloaf Region and the Carrabassett Valley. This multiple-use property is just north of the center of town and two miles southeast of Hancock Pond. The property has a primary access point via an established ROW off of a state highway. It also has additional frontage on a town road where access points could be established.

The topography is rolling with a northwest exposure. The highest point of the parcel is approximately 800' ASL and is in the northeastern corner of the lot. From there, there is a sharp 300' drop in elevation to a point where the slope becomes level to gradual to the lowest point of 400' ASL along Hancock Pond Road. Well-drained soils cover the majority of the property, with a few intermittent, seasonal streams. Harris Brook, a year-round brook, flows through the far eastern corner of the woodlot. In addition to forestry, the property and trails offer many opportunities for recreation, including hunting, hiking, snowshoeing and bird/wildlife viewing, along with many areas for peaceful enjoyment of the western Maine mountains.

The forest supports a mixed species composition of northern hardwoods (maples and birches) and white pine/mixed softwood, and has been managed for decades as a working forest. The last harvest occurred in the winter of 2011-12. Overall, the property can be classified as a small sawlog-sized mixedwood forest, comprised of sugar and red maple, white pine, white and yellow birch, white ash, hemlock, spruce, fir and aspen. The property offers good opportunity for long-term, quality timber production over time. With a mix of species and size classes, as well as good soils, continued management will yield long-term financial results.
