Part preserve, part playground. Russell Lands has set aside several thousand acres throughout its property at Lake Martin as a working forest known as the Russell Forest. Russell Forest will ensure that future generations of Lake Martin residents and visitors may personally experience the woodlands along with the flora and fauna it supports.
The Russell Forest also ensures that development will proceed in a manner harmonious with nature. It provides spectacular hiking, biking and equestrian recreation and serves as a center stage for our certified Naturalist. Maintenance of the Russell Forest as a working forest will continue to provide filtration of our part of the watershed and keep Lake Martin as one of America’s cleanest lakes.
