Rochester Land Trust buys Barnes Tree Service property

Sep 05, 2017

Rochester — The Rochester Land Trust has bought the Barnes Tree Service Preserve from the Everett Davis and Diane Mullens families. A grant from the Buzzards Bay National Estuary Program helped make the purchase possible.

The property is 18 acres and has frontage along Mattapoisett Road, and runs west to the Mattapoisett River. The acquisition is part of a continuing effort by land conservation entities to preserve lands which protect the area’s groundwater resources.

The property is located immediately north of the George Church Homestead at approximately 165 Mattapoisett Road and is open to the public. There are no trails, parking or other improvements made to the property yet.
