Listed by Michael Tragner of Fountains Land Inc.
Barnard Ridge Forest is ideally suited to the development of a private, year-round homestead with features that include: - 20-minute walk to Barnard Village and Silver Lake, and 3-minute walk to the Barnard Inn restaurant; - Prime potential home site, including one at the top of the mountain with panoramic views; - Aesthetic forest conditions with trails, large maturing sugar maple trees and ±5,000 potential maple taps. The timber resource can be considered well above average, having been professionally managed by the current owner since her acquisition of the property in 1994. The tree species composition is nearly pure sugar maple, with a cohort of white ash, hornbeam and beech. The forest management plan (available upon request) delineates two forest stands, each maturing sugar maple types. Tree density is high and diameters are fairly large, creating minimal understory growth in many areas and facilitating easy walking conditions. The forest was thinned in 1999 using individual tree selection. The results are impressive: adequate growing conditions have resulted in a forest where nearly all residual stems are of high quality, ensuring robust future growth and value appreciation. For the hobby sugarbush operator, the land could likely sustain ±5,000 taps.
