Burnell Conservation Easement
December 14, 2005
The 100-acre Burnell property in Bartlett abuts the 515-acre Merriman State Forest and the 16-acre Osgood property, and adds to a significant block of conservation land important for wide-ranging species and ecological processes. The property is protected with a working forest easement that allows for the sustainable production of forest products, and also helps protect the watershed and associated wetlands of Eben Abbott 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.”
