Description

South Hill Forest offers the privacy of a secluded mountaintop retreat while also benefitting from easy access to a region rich in recreational opportunities. Located in the south-central Vermont, the property is close to Killington Ski Resort, Green Mountain National Golf Course, and Green Mountain National Forest. The property provides exceptional views of the Green Mountains in many directions. A home or cottage retreat could be established to capture these views. A number of hiking paths start at South Hill's grassy knoll and meander among the mature hardwood trees to the land's high elevation areas. These paths make their way to an upper ridge complex where views expand in all directions.

The western portion of the property has its own access with frontage on the Tweed River. This cold, clear river is excellent for fishing, swimming and exploring. From the river, the property rises sharply in elevation with two gently sloped benches along the way. From the higher bench, the views widen to include a sweeping vista from the south to the north. Overall, however, the terrain is fairly steep.

The property is in the Green Mountain Range, a region known to grow some of the finest sugar maple in the world. The forest consists primarily of northern hardwoods, including sugar maple, beech, the birches, red maple, ash and cherry. A mature age class of red spruce is a common associate. Along the ridgetops, the timber resource is generally characterized by well-stocked, mixed species stands of cherry, spruce, the maples, birches and beech. While stem quality here is average, overall aesthetics are quite nice. The remaining sections of the forest (the majority by acreage) consist of northern and westerly slopes falling from the ridgeline. Here the soils are richer and species such as maple dominate. In most of these areas stem quality is excellent with the overstory trees roughly 75 years old. With sugar maple being the dominate species, there is potential to convert a considerable portion of the forest to a sugarbush. Timber data from the forest management plans indicates a potential of 12,000 gross taps.
