Nute Plantation

The Nute Plantation, located between Governors and Hare Roads in Milton, were preserved through two contiguous conservation easements donated to the Town of Milton by landowners Jonathan and Anne Nute. MMRG holds an executory interest on these conservation easements.

The property, a registered tree farm with historic stone walls, has been in the Nute family since 1850, when, according to Jonathan Nute, “it was one of many prosperous farms along the Ridge.” Since then, most farms have been replaced by houses and the Nutes wish to preserve this remaining undeveloped area of the Ridge. Said Jonathan, “These easements protect 37 acres of working forest and more than 1,600 feet of road frontage. In 1937, my grandfather and father planted white pine trees on the property, some of which have been already harvested; another thinning is planned soon. Knowing that this property will remain forestland, preserved in partnership with the Town and MMRG, really gives us peace of mind and helps to honor all those generations in the past.”
