Lemon Stream Forest

West Mills Road, Anson , Maine 04911 - Somerset County
$245,000 355 Acres
Property ID 2574883


Lemon Stream is a central Maine forest set along a scenic stretch of Lemon Stream and its tributary. Located in a small, southern Maine town, the forest is in an historic mill districy but just an hour or two to bigger cities. The central portion of the property fronting the main road offers the best conditions for potential building. Given the relatively level terrain and good soils, it is not surprising that this is where the original homestead was built. A network of forest trails traverse the property offering ample interior access for enjoying a host of recreational activities, including fishing and hunting.

Lemon Stream serves as the dominant natural feature with its graceful turns, rocky shoreline, and varying width offering a strong aesthetic feature. The rivers rocky composition is punctuated by small pools with bank overhangs and woody debris offering good potential brook trout habitat for those who know where to look. The tributary is lined with a substantial margin of wetland vegetation, and a wildlife travel corridor threads the wetland margin and the forest canopy.

The forest supports a mixed species composition of red maple, balsam fir, cedar and sugar maple with medium stem quality overall and a pole to small sawlog size diameter distribution.

The majority of forest terrain slopes gently to the north where it flattens out along the narrow flood plain of Lemon Stream and its tributary. About 75% of the tract soils are well-drained and suitable for year-round forestry, with the remaining 25% poorly drained, particularly in the cedar forest that dominates the eastern part of the tract.
