Keeping the forest healthy

City begins tree harvesting program at Clement Farm Conservation Area


“As we develop Clement Farm, it was brought to our attention there is a trail that leads to Little River, which we might want to highlight as the best trail to use so people don’t wander off the trail and make their own access points and cause damage,” Moore said.

Clement Farm tree harvesting plan by the numbers: Clement Farm: Total of 53 total acres, with about 42 acres of forested area under stewardship. Tree cutting and thinning: Limited to about 24 acres of forested area. Tree harvesting: 75,000 board-feet of lumber goes to Hopkinton Forestry & Land Clearing Co.
