Eden Square Timberland is a long-term timber investment property with attractive species composition, secure access and excellent potential for asset appreciation from the timber resource. The ownership, Atlas Timberlands Partnership, is a collaboration between two well-known conservation groups: The Nature Conservancy and the Vermont Land Trust. Together, they have held the property (along with other lands) as a model for managing a diverse array of stewardship goals, including the practice of sustainable silvicultural operations. Their goal in divesting is to raise funds to further their forestland conservation work on new projects. Investment highlights include: Â· Species composition dominated by sugar maple (33%) and yellow birch (23%); Â· Net timber value of $533,000; Â· Middle-aged, fully-stocked overstory, well-positioned for asset appreciation; Â· Solid access conditions. The propertyâ€™s terrain is mostly gently sloping, with the only moderate slopes along the Wild Branch River. Soil drainage is mixed, with areas of semi-compromised soils which are largely located at the landâ€™s southern end and defined by the Surface Water Protection Zones (SWPZs) (see the property maps). However, it should be noted that the timber quality in this area is quite good in many areas. Generally, conditions for forest operations are excellent. All of the streams that run through the land originate near the top of the watershed and thus run low during dry summer months.
