This two-parcel portfolio located in the heart of the St. John River watershed offers an
abundant timber resource coupled with unique recreational opportunities.
The St. John Portfolio is accessed via deeded rights-of-way on multiple well-maintained private forest management roads. The Maibec-Blanchet Road, a significant private transportation corridor connecting northern Maine timberlands with processing facilities in Quebec, Canada, lies adjacent to the T13 R14 tract. The Estcourt Road is within easy reach of the more northern T16 R13 parcel. Both parcels feature a developed internal forest management road network and are well-situated to take advantage of multiple major timber markets. The St. John River meanders close to each parcel, offering a unique recreational opportunity in an area prized for its remote character.
The St. John Portfolio offers a 100% fee simple interest in the T16 R13 parcel and a 99.6% common and undivided interest in the T13 R14 parcel. The Portfolio features a total of 18,068 ± acres of conservatively managed prime timberland located in the North Maine Woods with easy access to the Quebec border mills and other significant forest product markets in Maine. The Portfolio features an existing recreational camp lease that generates additional annual income. The property is located in Maine’s Wildlife Management District 1 in a region well-known for remote hunting and fishing experiences. Numerous campsites, sporting camps and guide services in the area offer recreational use of the St. John River, famed for its remote canoe trips.
