Easy access for forestry operations
Thanks to a well-established road network, and the flat to hilly aspect of the Quebec Province, the private blocks are generally easy to access and exploit. Roughly 85 % of the area is on a gentle, slight or moderate slope, or is flat.
The Chief Canadian Forest Office maps show that most of the stands have a high volume to be removed.
The area has an established hydrographic network : lakes (that alone cover 357 hectares) and rivers, but also many streams that cross the region.
Wetlands with a High Environmental Value account for 550 hectares.
A wide variety of plant and wildlife resources
Not forgetting the Canada Lynx
Many other species inhabit the area.
The diversity of plant species is equally impressive with bioclimatic subdomains from maple to linden to the east or maple to yellow birch to the west, to name but two.
Buying such a forestry asset is an interesting opportunity on a woodlot trading market that is continually progressing.
