Farm Description

Grafton Forest, a classic recreational woodlot property within 20 minutes of Albany's Capital Region, is located in the scenic town of Grafton, an historic community nestled within the county's Rensselaer Highland Plateau region. Grafton Lakes State Park is 2 miles from the property and hosts 13 lakes within its 2,000-acre footprint. This popular park offers swimming, boating, cross country skiing and horseback riding options throughout the year. The property is easily accessible with frontage on South Road and offers an intricate network of forestry trails throughout the land.

Grafton Forest offers a fine opportunity for long-term woodlot investment goals, outdoor recreation, or future weekend home options. Of notable interest is a private hardwood stand situated in the heart of the land where soils are well drained and the terrain is very easy to navigate. This area has tall hardwood trees with much of the understory free of dense regeneration, providing excellent forest aesthetics and seclusion.

Nearly 100% of the land is forested with a naturally diverse northern forest resource. Hardwood stands are fully stocked, primarily with maples, black cherry and white ash, offering future income potential and an excellent timber asset appreciation opportunity for the long-term buyer. Mixed evergreen and hardwood units occupy the northwestern third of the property and provide important winter food and thermal cover for resident wildlife. The region is known to host a transient moose population along with popular big game species like whitetail deer and black bear.
