Fields on the higher portions of the property offer spectacular views of the Susquehanna River’s West Branch Valley and Bald Eagle Mountain. Most of the property is forested, containing a diverse variety of habitats, and has been under a forest management plan since 1992. The owners improved their timber stands, maintained existing roads and trails, and constructed a new access road. For many years they heated their home with wood cut from their woodland and did the first work in their woodland through a timber sale in 1971. They learned about NPC through their consulting forester, and wanting to protect the natural and scenic features of their property, worked with NPC to place a conservation easement agreement on 56 acres.
