TERMSThe bidder must pre-register before auction and display to Auctioneer proof of deposit to obtain bidder number. At the sale, the person holding the public auction shall sell to the highest aggregate bidder or bidders whether as two individual parcels or in total, please see multi-parcel method description below. The purchaser at the sale shall pay or show satisfactory proof of cash or bank letter of guarantee, or produce a commitment letter from a bank or mortgage company or other lender licensed to do business in the State of Vermont, to the person holding the sale.

Purchaser is required to sign a Purchase & Sale Agreement at the time of the auction with a close date no greater than 30 day from auction.

MULTI-PARCEL AUCTION METHODHere is a brief description of the Multi-Parcel Auction Method. The first individual track will be auctioned to a point that the bidding has stopped advancing. Bids will be recorded with the amount & the bidder numbers. We will then proceed with the same process with the second track. We will then combine the bids from the two individual tracks and request if there is a call for a combination, if yes we will begin the bidding plus a bid increment for the combination track. The combination will be auctioned to a point that the bidding has stopped advancing and the amount & bidder numbers recorded. We will then ask if there are any requests for the individual tracts again. If there is, we will add the amount that the combination advanced to what the original bid on that tract was and increase it by the bid increment amount. If bidding begins, then both tracts come out of the combination and are reinstated as individual tracts. The individual tracts will then be auctioned to the point bidding stops advancing. We will then ask if there are any requests for the combination . . . . . and so on until there are no more bids. At this point the Auctioneer declares Last call! Any more requests for any individual tract or the combination? If NO, then the Auctioneer will check the reserve levels and if met will declare each tract or the combination or whatever the winning positions are at that point SOLD! It is important that as a bidder you stay engaged to the end. Using this method can lead to an individual track coming out of a combination during the second or third round and actually starting at an initial price level that was less than the previous initial price level.

Tract 1

Sugarbush Inventory ReportJune, 2012 Prepared For: Normand Inkel, Tract 1 Property Located in: Eden, Vermont

A forest inventory was performed in late May / early June, 2012 to assess the potential of developing a sugarbush on the 432 acre Inkel property in Eden, Vermont. This inventory consisted of 52 prism plots (15 BAF) located systematically across the property on a 5 by 10 chain grid. Plot locations were predetermined using a GIS mapping program and located in the field with a Trimble GPS unit. Prism plot measurements included all sugar maple and red maple trees with a diameter at breast height (DBH) of 4 inches and larger. The diameter of each tree in the plot was measured using a Biltmore stick and/or a diameter tape. Each tree evaluated in terms of overall health, vigor, and structural soundness and categorized as acceptable or unacceptable for tapping. Trees that were determined to be unacceptable for tapping represent a very small percentage of the overall forest and are not included in any of the following reports. In addition, a regeneration assessment was conducted using 1/200th acre (8.3 foot radius) fixed radius plots located at the center of each overstory prism point. Each regeneration plot was broken into four equal quadrants and the most dominant, free to grow tree was recorded on each quadrant. It has been determined that if proportion of plots stocked by desirable species is 60 percent or more, the stand will achieve an adequate stocking level for a northern hardwood stand (Leak, William B. Soloman, Dale S. Debald, Paul S. 1987 Silvicultural guide for northernhardwood forest types in the Northeast (revised) Res.Pap. NE-603. Broomall, PA, USDA, Forest Service.)

Results from this inventory are shown in the following pages. The property can be summarized as a young forest with a somewhat scattered overstory and abundant regeneration of desirable species (maple, birch, ash). Overall, the tree health appears excellent and given the growing space provided around the crowns of the overstory trees, growth rates should be very strong over the next 50 years. The forest can be considered fully regenerated, and it is expected that the abundant saplings will develop into a strong poletimber / small sawtimber sized component over the next 25 years. In addition to plot data collected, field mapping of the sugarbush area was done using ESRI ArcPad software on a Trimble Ranger GPS. The purpose of this mapping was to delineate the areas that were appropriate and operable for sugarbush management. The following maps show the portion of the property that are considered appropriate at this time.

In addition, there were 28 trees per acre in the 4"- 5" diameter class that are currently not considered large enough for tapping but should reach tappable size in the next ten years.

prepared by: Brendan Moore, Acer Forestry 6/2/12 Note: All numbers shown are estimates based on May, 2012 timber cruise. There are no guaranteess expressed or implied. Maple tapping standards used are trees 6" diameter up to 17" diameter would receive one tap, trees 18" diameter and larger would receive 2 taps.
