Peppers Mill Forest

Route 9, Ware, Massachusetts 01082 - Hampshire County
$317,000 126 Acres
Property ID 2686569


Peppers Mill Forest is a central Massachusetts forest offering abundant recreational opportunities, a substantial timber resource, and year-round residential potential. The forest is in the town of Ware, a semi-rural town in the Ware River Valley and just south of the Quabbin Reservoir. Within the property, the majority of terrain slopes gently to the west. Soils are generally well-drained with only a few seasonally wet areas towards the north. The upper portion of the forest, offers scenic views across Peppers Mill Pond to the opposing ridgeline. Some tree clearing would be necessary to open up these views to the west.

The forest supports an oak-pine type common to the region. Overall health and quality of the timber is good to above average. Approximately 75% of the sawlog value is comprised of acceptable growing stock, revealing a forest of exceptional timber quality the product of decades of sound forest management. The most recent harvest was a careful thinning that occurred in the early 90s, focusing on removing the lesser-quality trees. The diameter distribution reveals that this forest has not seen any significant harvesting in over 25 years. Recent timber inventories calculate a capital timber value (CTV) of $212,700
