Burnell Conservation Easement
A working forest conservation easement on the 100-acre Burnell property in Bartlett, NH ensures the ability of the land to produce forest products for future generations. The property abuts the 515-acre Merriman State Forest and the 16-acre Osgood property, also permanently protected by a conservation easement donated to the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust. Additionally, the easement protects the watershed and associated wetlands of Eben Abott and Wheeler Brooks.
The Burnell easement is consistent with Bartlett’s Master Plan which states:
“Of paramount importance … continues to be the protection of our water resources and our open or forested spaces.”
