  • In the Public's View

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.
