It is not very often that an opportunity to own 1,320 acres of timberland presents itself, never mind 1,320 acres of timberland that has been respectfully owned and managed by the same family throughout four generations. But, between Wilton, ME and Weld, ME in the unorganized territory of Perkins Township, on Route 156 in Franklin County, that opportunity awaits.

On this property, the opportunities are limited only by your imagination.this land has much to offer in the way of production and recreation.

While most of the property has been through well-planned harvests in the past 15 years, there are strategically distributed stands of trees in place for future cutting. These highly-stocked stands will provide excellent potential for asset appreciation from the timber resource.
On this land, you will have the chance to hunt everything from snowshoe hares to trophy bull moose. This tract's sizable acreage, good timber, and natural sanctuaries, coupled with its forested riparian zones that provide some of the most food-rich grounds in the area, make it a sportsman's paradise. Outside of hunting, you can jump on your Atv, Utv, snowmobile, horse, cross-country skis, or mountain bike and cruise the expansive network of logging roads that already exist on the property.
