Markham Mountain Forest represents an attractive, long-term timber investment opportunity, dominated by sugar maple, which provides an additional opportunity in the form of the possibility for a large-scale sugarbush operation. The land's conservation easement allows for development of a homesite and associated structures, plus a camp in the woods. The current owner is Vermont Land Trust and their goal in divesting is to raise funds to further their forestland conservation work on new projects. Property highlights include: Attractive location just up the road from Weston Village, within 12-15 miles of two major ski resorts: Okemo and Stratton Mountains; Includes a 5-acre building site for home construction, plus a camp can be built in the woodland area; Solid, long-term timber investment, where the asking price is 91% of the standing capital timber value; Ideal species composition, dominated by sugar maple; Sugarbush opportunity with ±17,000 taps on slopes that all run towards the road frontage and electric power.
