Farm Description

Shaw Mountain Forest is an affordable timber investment where the value of the timber resource represents the majority of the asking price. Other highlights include paved road frontage, river shoreline and potential house site attributes. The property is located in scenic central Vermont in the town of Northfield, home to about 6,000 people and Norwich University, the nation’s oldest military college. The twin cities of Montpelier and Barre are located within a 20-minute drive of the property. The forest occupies the northeastern slopes of Shaw Mountain with moderate to occasional steep slopes and gently sloping benches. Sunny Brook, a fast moving year-round stream forms the northeastern boundary line. Housing opportunities along the lower slopes of the forest are very good with an immediate opportunity at the terminus of the main driveway where there is an existing septic tank and leach field.

The timber resource consists primarily of hardwood stands dominated by sugar maple and ash. Growing conditions are ideal as is manifested by the superior stem quality, and favorable height-to-crown ratio. The timber resource is well positioned for asset appreciation in its hardwood and red spruce resource. A recent timber inventory indicated a Capital Timber Value of $160,800. In addition, there is a potential, small sugarbush opportunity of roughly 4,000 taps.
