Livingston Timber

Livingston Timber, purchased in 1975, is located one mile north of Perlee off the Pleasant Plain Road. Forty-five of its 74 acres were planted to red and white pine 45 years ago. This is the second largest pine plantation in Jefferson County.

In 1997, every third row of pines were removed to help the remaining trees mature properly.

Dimensional lumber was cut from the pines and was utilized in the construction of the camping cabins in Jefferson County Park.

This lumber was also used to make numerous picnic tables for Jefferson County Conservation Board recreation areas.

The staging area was converted to a large parking lot after the thinning project was over. The remaining timberland is mostly oak and hickory with some brushy areas.

Livingston Timber is an excellent hunting area with good populations of deer, squirrel and turkeys.    See the Hunting page.
