A well-managed, mixed species forest with Class VI road access, an established trail system, and stand structure positioned for long-term appreciation. Strawbrook Forest is in Canaan, New Hampshire, a small rural town of less than 4,000 year-round residents approximately 12 miles east of Lebanon and Hanover, New Hampshire. The town is home to Cardigan Mountain School, Mascoma State Forest, and an abundance of water bodies, including scenic Goose Pond and Canaan Street Lake. Located within minutes of Interstates 89 and 91, there is ample opportunity to access a variety of both low-grade and high grade forest product markets within New Hampshire, Vermont and Canada. Regionally, the forest is located about 16 miles east of White River Junction, Vermont and Interstate 91; Concord, NH is about 50 miles away, while Boston, Massachusetts is located 120 miles away or just over a two-hour drive. A thinning conducted in the summer of 2017 has left a well-distributed mix of mature white pine, red oak, sugar maple and other hardwoods. The intent of the thinning was to promote multiple age classes in the hardwoods and create a shelterwood in the pine stands while also promoting residual high quality sawlogs. In the hardwood stands, a group selection was applied to allocate growing space across a range of ages. Quality in the residual overstory was a priority throughout the thinning in both hardwood and softwood stands.
