Description: Small woodlot ownerships are a commodity on the real estate market which have cycled through a supply and demand curve on a somewhat irregular basis. In order to have some understanding of what it is we are talking about, it is necessary to define what a small woodlot is, and where it may be found. In size these parcels can range from ten acres to fifteen acres on up to fifteen hundred acres to two thousand acres. Geographic locations encompass the entire Northeast. Most of our larger communities encompass a few forest production parcels within their municipal boundaries, and these are the properties that we see being developed yearly for commercial and residential purposes. The outlying urban and rural areas of the organized communities have their land base created almost entirely by these tracts. The magnitude of this forested area is startlingly apparent when you fly over the Northeast and see the relatively small amount of land intensively developed as opposed to woodland acres.
