Broad Brook Forest is ideally suited to long-term timber investment with its high-quality maple, yellow birch and ash sawlog component and standing timber value of $584,600. Alternative uses include year-round home construction or conversion of some lands to sugarbush management. There are two access points to the property, a network of woods trails and a well-maintained snowmobile trail. The forest covers much of the eastern portion of Broad Brook Mountain. Terrain falls in various directions from the mountainâs many ridges and is generally gentle. The northern section of the forest has three subdivided and surveyed buildable lots (7.5, 20.7 and 10.5 acres). The species composition is dominated by hardwoods, led by sugar maple, and then red maple, yellow birch, hemlock, white ash and beech. Aside from recent group patch cuts, stands are generally fully-stocked stands. Sawlog value is largely dominated by sugar maple, yellow birch, ash and red maple, ensuring that future value growth will occur on the species that are highly desirable in the marketplace. The property may offer a sugarbush opportunity on some of its acreage. Much, although not all, of the land slopes into the two access points. A 2017 timber inventory indicate a property-wide potential tap count of 21,295.
