Located in the Outaouais area, at the gateway to the Papineau-Labelle wildlife reserve, the woodlot for sale is one and half hours from the Canadian capital, Ottawa and two and half hours from Montreal the country’s second town.
This woodlot has several advantages.
First, it borders two lakes to the west linked by the meander of a river.
An urban development project is also possible. The potential project might see roughly 15 waterfront lots while maintaining 137 hectares of forest alongside the lots to the east.
The future owner would also be able to build their main residence and keep the forest for personal leisure activities, converting the forest estate into a hunting and fishing ground.
Hunters will be in their element thanks to the presence of both white-tailed deer and moose. Bear hunting is also possible.
This part of the world not only offers great catches of black-bass and yellow walleye for fishers, but also pike and trout.
Sports enthusiasts will enjoy winter outings, as for the lakes, they are suitable for water activities such as boating and swimming.
Once again, forest is prevalent on this woodlot, which is characterized by its diversity. There are remarkable red pine plantations to the north of the property but also in the center. Operations will be easy as they are alongside the road.
Deciduous species such as white birch, yellow birch, maple and oak are the forest’s main species. These can be used as timber. Balsam fir and red spruce are also present in a more scattered manner.
The advantage of this property is that it is in an ocean of forest while being close to the nearest houses, not far from the large town.
In Quebec, the ‘white zone’, which makes building houses easier, means it is possible to make a land-reserve-type investment. It also makes it possible for a developer to create a high-end, quality housing development with widely spaced, wooded plots with a breathtaking view of the lake and nature as well as easy, preferential access.
As for the forest, it is suitable for an increased-value investment.
