The 480-acre Pittston Forest is a well-stocked hardwood timberland asset situated in northeastern Pennsylvania. This property is a classic multiple-use kingdom lot, well-suited for timber investment, lifestyle and recreation. Its exceptional paved access, good location, productive hardwood ridge sites and long views combine to create excellent private estate options or light rural subdivision opportunities during the coming ownership cycle.
The property is defined by highly-productive Appalachian soils and classic upland hardwood ridge and valley terrain. Access is via 6,000’ of paved four-season road frontage as well as an established network of forestry trails. There are several residential options, including an off-grid cabin site with unparalleled views up and down the Susquehanna River.
The forest consists primarily of hardwood species; including the oak and maples with associated other desirable species such as birch, ash, poplar and hickory. A small volume of lower valued hemlock and aspen is dispersed over the forest. Total volume across the property is near average for the region and provides ideal conditions to implement further thinning operations.
