Anne Jones grew up in Salisbury surrounded by woodlands home to native wildlife and a babbling brook. She’s since moved out of the area, but she reached out to
Greenbelt hoping to find a way to conserve these woods.
Bordering both the well-used Ghost Trail bike and walking path, and by a new section of the Border-to-Boston Rail trail, preserving this land was important for ensuring a scenic buffer
between the trails and more developed areas.
Greenbelt and Mrs. Jones agreed on a below-market price sale that could be accomplished in a relatively short period of time.

Land will be forever conserved for wildlife and all who use the rail trails.
So much of our vacant land is being developed and driving out the wildlife. I hated to see that happen.
I sought out Greenbelt as a way to preserve the woodlands which have been dear to me since childhood. They were wonderful to work with!
