Property Description

Located along the Selkirk Road, one of the main roads in Kings PEI, this property had some farming activity in the section closest to the road.  This was later turned into a balsam fir and white pine plantation.  All stands on the property were either partially cut or clearcut, and the majority of the property is made up of early successional stands with little diversity.  The property can certainly produce high-quality trees especially, as evidenced by the western section of the property where the large trees are located. The land is well-drained and gradually sloping for the most part towards the west.  The property has an overgrown forest road running almost the entire length in an east-west direction, which will provide good accessibility once it is cleaned up.
