Tree Farm — The LLCOA operates a tree farm on about 600 of our 660 acres. This allows us to keep this acreage in a more-or-less wild state while lowering our property tax liability dramatically, compared to what we would be paying if it were assessed as residential or commercial property. We have to show “active devotion to agriculture.” This means we can’t just leave the woods alone to grow, but must do things a farmer would do, including harvesting and weeding. Our “Forest Stewardship Plan,” which you can download just below, explains all this in detail. Also, the Plan was amended in 2015 to incorporate the timber work and other activities associated with the Golden Winged Warbler Habitat Project, and that amendment is the second download link below.
