Introduction

A coastal Maine forest with a growing softwood resource, brook and pond frontage, interior roads and ample recreational opportunity within an hour of Acadia National Park

Location

The parcel is located in the small coastal town of Steuben, Maine, known for its iconic rocky shore with small bays and coves dotted with colorful lobster buoys and spruce-capped islands. Steuben has just over 1,000 year-round residents, some being multi-generational shellfishermen, independent contractors, and many who work in the tourism/hospitality industry that thrives in and around Acadia National Park, less than one hour from town.

Access

The parcel has about 600’ of frontage on US Route 1, off which a gravel road provides interior access.

Site Description

Typical of the Downeast Region, the topography is flat to gently rolling. Soils are predominantly well-drained with a sandy/gravelly composition. A few pockets of wetlands exist. The year-round Whitten Parritt Stream flows along the western boundary, partially fed by a small beaver pond located near parcel center. Small gravel deposits exist on the property which are useful for internal road construction and maintenance.

Timber

The parcel was harvested about twenty-five years ago, leaving a patchwork of varying age classes, with the majority in the 25 to 35-year range. Species composition is mixed, with spruce/fir and scattered pine being dominant. Hardwoods consist of mostly a shade-intolerant poplar/white birch/red maple mix. The next commercial thinning would be recommended in another 10 years.
