If you're looking to diversify your investment portfolio, you'll want to consider this beautiful 125 acre forestry parcel. Located in Kasson Township (Leelanau County), south of Empire Highway/M-72, this stellar offering is flanked by state land on it's half mile west boundary, and is surrounded by mostly timbered properties. This property provides excellent habitat for deer and game birds, and is well suited to recreational uses such as ATV, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking and cross country skiing. Owned by members of the same family since the 1960's, managed by Richard Cooper, a local consulting forester, this property is enrolled in the Commercial Forest program that calls for sustainable forestry practices, while taking advantage of minimal real estate taxes. This has afforded significant income from the occasional select harvest of trees at 10 to 15 year intervals. Predominately maple, but there are some beautiful wild cherry trees, and stands of hemlock that provide exceptional wildlife habitat. There is also a small, meandering stream that dissects the property, flows year round, and links Garey and Courson Lakes to Wells and Gilbert Lakes This sort of legacy property is not commonly offered, and will pay future dividends in environmental, recreational and timber sale benefits, for generations to come. West Beeman Road is a seasonal road that traverses the property and connects South Gilbert Road, to Plowman Road.
