Year Conserved: 2007
About the Property: Approximately 200 acres of mountain slopes, shoreline, wetlands, streams, and hardwood, mixed-wood, and softwood forests are conserved near Greenwood Ponds in Elliotsville.
The Greenwood Ponds easement was donated in 2007 by thoughtful landowners who enjoyed spending time at their seasonal camp on Big Greenwood Pond and wanted to ensure the property would face little change through time. The easement addresses multiple forest values, including ecological protections and assurances for exemplary forest management into the future. The landowners’ right to manage their forestlands for firewood, wildlife habitat, timber, and the scenic values of the ponds are guaranteed.
