19 Robbo Holleran Forester 211 Green Mountain Tpk., Chester VT (802) Phone, Fax Providing a complete forest management service since 1982 Tara Olson: acres, Londonderry VT March 2014 Location: This acre property is located in Londonderry, Vermont, just 1.5 miles south of Londonderry village. It has over ¼ mile of frontage on Route 100, and is in the heart of southern Vermont ski country. Stratton is 7 miles to the south, Bromley is 8 miles to the west and Magic Mountain is 3 miles to the east. The property overlooks a section of the West River which is known as good trout fishing. This is a rural residential neighborhood with forests, estates, small farms, and small businesses. GPS Coordinates are: N 43 degrees, 12.5 W 72 degrees 49.3.

20 Site description: The property is acres, surveyed before It is all forested with small openings and a good access driveway built into the center of the property. The land is mostly of a gentle slope, with good forestry soils, probably pastured in the 1800 s with some stone wall boundaries. The land slopes to the west and south, and goes to the top of a knoll at about 1600 feet above sea level. The West River is at about The forest is further described below, but is generally mixed softwoods and hardwoods, and fully stocked. The property is enrolled in Use Value Appraisal, with 10 acres excluded which could be developed with no UVA penalty. Taxes in 2013 were $ , which is reduced 70% by Use value enrollment. Zoning: Zoning and subdivision options were not accessed into for this report. There are some lots as small as 1 acre nearby, and light commercial development to the south. See the Town Zoning rules for details. Ten acres in the center of the property are excluded from Use Value Appraisal restrictions. This could be developed without a Use Value penalty. Options include an estate house, or small dwelling, possibly several dwellings or even a hunting camp. Further review for septic system approval and local permits is prudent. These ten acres could also be cleared for open land such as pasture, gardening, etc. If only one dwelling is constructed, additional acres could be enrolled in UVA to further reduce the property taxes.

21 Forestland: The forest land is mostly moderately sloping pasture regrowth mixedwoods with one steep ridge on the southern end. Overall, this is an uneven aged forest with hemlock, white pine and a wide range of hardwoods. The oldest trees are likely hemlocks, with hemlock, pine and hardwoods in middle ages, and a full range of native species as young growth and understory. This makes for a very diverse forest with a wide range of wildlife species and management options. Forests on the ridge are older. Moderate harvesting was last done in 2002, giving some regeneration groups but high levels of stocking overall, and a high percent of trees over 16 dbh. The site is generally good for timber growth on well to moderately well drained soils. The largest stand in the central portion of the property, and up to the knoll, includes a mature white pine component, mostly over 16 dbh. These are nice looking trees that could be maintained for further growth, or harvested for quality lumber products. These are in mixture with hemlocks and hardwoods, as elsewhere on the property. Most of the lot is dominated by hemlock and hardwoods in mixture. Timber summary: All of the land is productive forestland, with a good stocking of hemlock, pine, and mixed hardwoods. Sawtimber stocking (see notes on timber inventory for details and disclaimer) is estimated at 430 thousand board feet and 947 cords, or 5 Mbf and 11 cords per acre. This does not include topwood from sawlog trees, which will generally add another 5 cords per acre. Sawtimber is approximately 30% white pine, 12% spruce-fir, 42% hemlock, 16% diverse hardwoods. Approximately 59% of total basal area stocking is acceptable growing stock, meaning the trees are capable of producing a sawlog now, or in the future, of any grade. All stands are between the A-line and B-line on appropriate stocking charts or higher, which indicates they are well stocked. Based on current market conditions, standing timber capital is estimated at $44,525. Forest and wildlife management options: This is a very diverse property that provides excellent habitat for a full range of local wildlife. Deer, grouse and turkeys will use the diversity of habitats here, along with a wide range of migratory birds. Bear, moose, bobcats and just about anything else will use this habitat on occasion. Softwoods, hardwoods, multi-canopied forests, and a few beech for nuts are all important elements. Normal forestry techniques will maintain this diversity to provide a continued balance of forest and age types. To emphasize game species management, habitat can be improved by harvesting groups of 1-3 acres. The new growth of tree seedlings, raspberries, blackberries and herbaceous plants provides rich food and cover in proximity to more mature patches of forest for other habitat needs. This would be a particular benefit to deer, grouse and turkeys, but would also benefit a wide range of species. Forest management activities could emphasize timber, wildlife, recreation, or a balance of these. For example, mixedwood stands can be thinned to emphasize hardwoods, or softwoods, or maintain the mix. Income can be created by harvesting valuable mature trees and regenerating mature sections to young forest. Improvement cutting would remove primarily low-quality trees to advance the growth of higher value timber for the future. This would maintain nice-looking trees with a high aesthetic value and enhance trails for recreation. Much of the long-term timber potential is in medium sized hardwoods of birches, maple and ash, which could be released by thinning. The ten acre exclusion in the center of the property could be developed without UVA penalty. A portion could be cleared for pasture, or gardening. Additional land could be withdrawn from or enrolled in Use Value Appraisal if desired. Please contact me for further details and requirements. Yours, Robbo Holleran Consulting Forester
