Introduction

Located near the New Hampshire border, just five miles east of Northfield village on the Connecticut River Valley, this conserved forest offers gentle terrain, good quality timber and recreational opportunity.

A conservation easement held by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management allows for sustainable forestry according to a written management plan.

Location

Bolster Hill Forest is located in Warwick, Massachusetts, a small rural town with a modest New England village center just east of the Connecticut River Valley and known for its significant state forest ownership (nearly half the township). Warwick is located about 20 miles northwest of Athol, Massachusetts and a nearly equal distance to the southeast of Brattleboro, Vermont.

Access

The forest fronts Northfield Road, a paved, town-maintained road. A woods road off the Northfield Road frontage runs through the center of the parcel, skirting the western boundary as it travels north (continuing off the property).

Site Description

The topography is rolling to gently sloping; part of the lower slope of Bolster Hill. With few exceptions, soils are well-drained and completely operable for year-round forestry activities.

Timber

A timber inventory indicates nearly $60,000 in capital timber value, led by red oak, white pine and yellow/black birch, in descending order of sawlog percentage per species. There are approximately 11 cords/acre, including sawlog and pulpwood products.
