A multiple-use parcel with the White Mountains as a backdrop, Saco River Forest offers a prime building lot, 85+ acres of conserved forest, and extensive frontage on the Saco River.


Location

Saco River Forest is located in the western Maine town of Fryeburg, a small New England town located between the Saco River and New Hampshire's White Mountain Region. The property is located directly on the Saco River, at the end of a quiet gravel road a few miles from the village. Portland, Maine and I-95 are about 75 miles to the southeast.


Site Description

The forest's entire eastern boundary is defined by nearly 3,000' of frontage on a major bend in the Saco River, offering easy access for boating, fishing and swimming. Approximately 27 acres along the river corridor are designated as "Floodplain Forest" and are off-limits to timber harvesting. The remaining acreage is moderately well-drained, with gentle topography, and is available for long-term forest management. Timber species include white pine, red oak, and a mix of northern hardwoods.


Additional Info

The conservation easement allows for a 5-acre building lot located along the town-maintained Menotomy Road. Power and utilities are within a reasonable distance from the last year-round residence. Granite stone walls border two sides of the lot and the perimeter has been surveyed, with boundaries clearly marked. The terrain is moderately sloping and well-drained and offers several building options. With some tree clearing, long-distance views of the White Mountains may be possible.

The conservation easement will be held by the Upper Saco Valley Trust, an established land trust that promotes land conservation and sustainable forest management throughout the Upper Saco River Valley. The easement supports long-term forest management and a reasonable level of professional discretion based on sound silvicultural practices.
