LandVest is pleased to bring Starr Mountain to market. Starr Mountain is an attractive timberland investment property located fifteen minutes south of Island Pond in the heart of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. The property offers an exceptional hardwood resource with excellent access from VT114 and Lost Nation Road. A conservation easement encourages commercial forestry management and recreational uses while restricting development. Timber, recreation, and conservation values combine to offer a compelling timberland investment opportunity.

The forest offers excellent site quality with 98% commercial forested acres composed of a well-stocked diversity of maple, birch, and spruce/fir species. Sugar maple represents just under 50% of the sawtimber volume. The majority of the acreage is characterized by young hardwood stands with pole and sawtimber volume in the 7-12+” diameter range. Starr Mountain offers near-term opportunities for the harvesting of mature timber along with fully established hardwood regeneration and high-quality growing stock poised for long-term value appreciation. The property is third-party-certified under the current owner’s group certification, providing an advantage in local and regional wood markets that the next owner may wish to continue.

The property includes the peak and gentle westerly aspect of Starr Mountain. Several private camps generate approximately $5,000 in annual lease revenue. The property is enrolled in Vermont’s preferential Use Value Appraisal Program, helping to further reduce taxes. Starr Mountain is located proximate to Lake Willoughby and Burke Mountain ski area; approximately two hours from Burlington, Concord, and Montreal; and three and a half hours from Boston.
