Thick forest stands, a pristine river, long road frontage and scenic vistas characterize Missisquoi Branch Forest. This conserved property offers a prime homesite with an uninterrupted view of Hazen's Notch. The property has nearly 3,000' of frontage along Hazen Notch Road, a town-maintained, gravel road. An un-named river runs through the land north of the road frontage and onto the Missisquoi River in Lowell village. The river runs clear and offers excellent fishing opportunity. The local mountain vistas from the property's center are dramatic and include an uninterrupted view due west of Hazen's Notch. The view is further enhanced by the inclusion of various peaks along the Green Mountain range. Terrain within the small old fields near the river and wetland are mostly gently sloping with some level areas. The timber resource has not been managed in decades. Field observations indicate a productive forest that is overstocked in all areas. Species composition is dominated by softwoods, with hardwoods as a subcomponent. Given the overstocked conditions and tight overstory canopy, undergrowth is quite limited allowing for easy walking and high aesthetics. Thinning can occur at any time, releasing crop trees, harvesting the mature balsam fir, and generating income. The property is subject to a conservation easement which allows most sustainable and traditional forestry activities, posting against public access; and the development of a house site.
