$228,600 222 Acres
Property ID 4420992


New York timberland next to St. Lawrence County lands and Sodom State Forest for sale:  This parcel is best described as a diverse recreational property with potential to produce income from timber and mineral resources. Ideal habitat exists here as well for a variety of game and non-game species.  White tailed deer favor the cedar, balsam fir and hemlock lowlands while grouse, turkey and woodcock prefer the ash, maple, birch and aspen found in scattered pockets and throughout the eastern most portion of the property.  Trees in these areas are typically between 4 and 10 inches in diameter.
The bulk of the timber is found growing on deeper soils in a 100 acre region in the central portion of the property. The predominant tree species include sugar and red maple, red and white oak, black cherry, aspen, white ash, yellow birch, beech and basswood.  A rough estimate of the sawtimber volume in that area is 1,800 board feet/ac.  Mostly in the small sawtimber size class at this time with the potential to develop into some very high quality timber.  It has been over 35 years since the property was last harvested.
There is good access to an open sand pit (identified as 'Gravel Pit' on the topo map). The sand in this pit is considered to be of very high quality with the potential for a lease arrangement with a local municipality.
Good interior roads are found along the sand/gravel eskers found throughout the tract.
A property of this size would provide outdoor enthusiasts with a myriad of recreational options including; wildlife sightings, trapping, hunting, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, four wheeling and snowmobiling. Add a building lot on the Grasse River (also owned by the seller) to your purchase and include; swimming, tubing, fishing, canoeing and kayaking to the list!
In addition, the adjacent 290 acre parcel owned by St. Lawrence County surrounded by the 1,426 acre Sodom State Forest gives the owner over 1,800 acres of land to recreate on.
And if that's not enough to quench your recreational thirst, the St. Lawrence River is only about 10 minutes to the north and the Adirondack State Park 45 minutes to the south. So much to see and do in this spectacular region of Northern NY you'll never have time to be bored!


From Route 310 head west on Ruddy Road 1.5 miles to the southern most corner of the property on your right.
