This stand is located in the Northeast corner of the woodlot and is quite diverse in composition. The better quality sites contain pole and sawtimber sized white pine, while the rock outcrop areas are dominated by hardwoods, mainly red oak, maple, and birch. Much of the stand appears to have been blown down during the hurricane of 1983, which allowed the hardwood patches to develop. Shallow soil around the lodge areas is considered a poor quality sawtimber found there. The pine dominated areas were selectively cut approximately 20 years ago to remove the poor quality (crooked, forked, diseased or suppressed) stems.
