Scott Branch Quarry
The Property consists of approximately 120 acres of primarily pine, hardwood, and mixed pine hardwood forest. The varying topography is made up of a series of ridges with associated slopes and coves. The planted pine areas are typically along the ridge tops towards the north. The coves have a mix of pine-hardwood and hardwood stands. These areas have associated drainages, spring runs, and streams. The road frontage on the Property has beautiful scenic character with
exposed rock faces and mature hardwood forest. There is a woods road network that winds through most regions of the Property. There are some successional openings along the road network.
The intent for the future of the Property is to maintain the natural habitat and its assets through appropriate management and stewardship to protect and conserve its conservation values.
The streams and drainages of the Property flow into Scott Branch. Scott Branch flows into Salacoa Creek, a tributary of the Coosawattee River. Preservation of the Property and its hydrologic resources protect waterways and water quality downstream.
