Awarded a Forest Stewardship Award. The surrounding property of Historic Locust Hill Manor contains forests that are responsibly managed, providing environmental, social, and economic benefits. The carefully managed forests: provide enough oxygen for at least 10,000 people to breathe clean, healthy air; and, they reduce large amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Since more carbon dioxide is reduced than created by the property, the Historic Locust Hill Manor has a carbon negative footprint.
A member of the Conservation Reserve Program. Historic Locust Hill Manor became a member of the Conservation Reserve Program after planting 20 acres of fruit and oak trees. Additionally, no pesticides, chemicals, or petro-fertilizers are ever used on the land. The water, soil, and air stay clean and remain bountiful.
