Desrochers Memorial Forest, South Berwick

103.  Desrochers Memorial Forest, South Berwick (4/2013)  Fee
A donation of 138 acres abutting the South Berwick Town Forest off of Knight’s Pond Road. Donated by Mike and Patti Gallo, the property features 600 feet of frontage on the Great Works River and abuts another parcel (owner unknown) with over 1500 feet of frontage on the river. The Town of South Berwick granted a deeded ROW for access along the town forest road, as well as for use of the parking area (on a small parcel donated by the Gallos to the town). The town also granted a 50-ft ROW along the entire length of the Town Forest parcel to the river to provide access for stewardship and forest management activities. Much of the property is young hardwood forest, with a mature stand of white pines along the river. A woods road runs down the middle of the property to the river, accessed via a spur trail from the Town Forest ROW.
