The town of Springfield, ME which is located in northern Penobscot county boasts a population of approximately 409 citizens. Springfield is an old farming community and the signs of old homesteads can often be found in the forests that have reclaimed many of the once cleared farm fields. The forests around Springfield and the surrounding communities are working forests producing timber for area woods products manufacturers. The young regrowth from this harvesting provides excellent habitat for whitetail deer, moose, hares and grouse.
Outdoor pursuits are readily enjoyed by the inhabitants of the area. Hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, atv riding and snowsledding are all very popular. The logging roads throughout the area provide a base for an extensive ATV trail system in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter many of these same trails become groomed snowmobile highways. The nearby Grand Lake chain of lakes in Lakeville, as well as the streams that feed these waters, provide numerous angling opportunities year-round. The cold clear waters of this area provide excellent habitat for salmon, brook trout and lake trout. Spaulding Brook and Lombard Lake provide fishing opportunities right from the property for white perch and brook trout.
Timberdoodle Preserve is a 168.5+- acre parcel of improved upland bird habitat. The property had a selective timber harvest done to enhance woodcock breeding and nesting ground. Several wildlife clearings were made throughout the property and allowed to regenerate into young hardwood, and there is a large clearing where the mating dance of woodcock can be observed during the spring mating season. The boundary roads are designated ATV/snowmobile trails so those recreational pursuits can be had right from the property. Timberdoodle Preserve is an outstanding opportunity to own an upland bird and whitetail hunting property at a great price. Call today to set up a personal viewing of this outstanding recreational property.
