Land Description

Mountain Road Forest is ideally suited for a year-round home where one can enjoy views of the Green Mountain range from Sugarbush Ski Resort to the south sweeping north beyond Camels Hump, good accessibility and proximity to power, a few minutes' drive to Moretown village, and several mountain brooks. There are two points of road frontage for the property, one with an established driveway and clearing and the other with a potential driveway cut into the property's high ground. Internal trails are well developed and easy to walk.

The terrain is mostly gently sloping, creating western exposure with soils that are predominately well-drained and productive. Three streams run through the land. One is a year-round brook at the southern end, which is lined with dense hemlocks. A smaller brook bisects the forest while the third brook runs along the land's northern end. The high point on the forest is at the property's eastern end, not far from the road frontage. From this point, terrain gradually slopes westerly to where the mountain brook leaves the property. While nice views are possible from most areas of the forest, the highest elevation offers the best views and is the most easily accessed, when considering driveway construction. The potential house site in this area provides attractive local views as well as a panoramic view of the Green Mountain Range.

The timber resource has been carefully managed and has a property-wide Capital Timber Value (CTV) of $65,800 ($614/total acre). The species composition is diverse, with hemlock making up the majority of volume followed by other common species for the area including yellow birch, the maples and white pine. The forest was thinned in 2014 using a classic silvicultural “shelterwood” treatment whereby the lower ground stems were removed and thinning occurred in the overstory. This treatment creates open ground conditions, allowing long visibility within the forest and easy walking. Of particular interest is the thinned white pine stand at the western end of the property which holds “park-like” aesthetics. The sugar maple crop trees on the northern half of the land are of exceptional quality, with vibrant crowns and large diameters.
