Raquette River Forest is an appealing timberland investment situated in the heart of the northern Adirondacks with a diverse and productive forest resource, excellent access, and strong recreation and conservation amenities. The property parallels over 11 miles of the Raquette River, a state-designated Scenic River, and includes the summit of Mount Matumbla, the highest point in Saint Lawrence County. An exceptionally robust camp leasing program generates strong annual cashflow. The State of New York holds a conservation easement that lends strong support to ongoing commercial forestry operations and private leasing with a minimum of forest management restrictions and no requirement of public access. Over 90% of the property is fully operable commercial timberland enrolled in New York’s 480-A current use tax program. A fresh timber inventory was completed in March 2017 with a full accounting of timber volumes including growth and removals through 2018. Tupper Lake is the closest municipal population center situated just four miles east along State Route 3.
