Russell Forest

Part preserve, part playground. Russell Lands has set aside several thousand acres of property 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 supported by it. The Russell Forest also ensures that development will proceed in a manner harmonious with nature. It provides spectacular hiking, biking & 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.
