"Dad was always going off into the woods. He really loved this land a lot," said Marcia Butman, whose father, Bob Butman of Concord, Mass., acquired the property in 1964. "He really appreciated the peace and beauty of the forest."
Ms. Butman and her siblings donated a conservation easement of the property to the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.
The land abuts and enlarges a 990-acre property owned by New Forestry LLC and conserved with an easement held by the state Department of Resources and Economic Development, and it is close to conserved lands on Mount Cardigan.
