Description & History

In December 2001, the Berkovich family donated a conservation easement on 22 acres of undeveloped land adjacent to their house, reserving the right to construct one single family residence on the back portion of the property.  This forested parcel consists primarily of mixed hardwoods and softwoods and borders a large field area to the north.  The terrain is notably uneven, with several steeply sided hills that are remnants of past courses of Mill Brook which winds its way through the property from the Rines Forest. The parcel is subject to a forest management plan, with selective cutting occurring at intervals over the years.
