Description: The tract has varied terrain from flat to gently rolling to moderately steep. It has several miles of frontage on Flatwoods and Beaver Dam Creeks that cross the tract, as well as additional secondary streams meandering over the tract.
There are approximately 1.7 miles of road frontage on Burghamy Swamp Road (Crenshaw County Rte. 11) which crosses the eastern portion of the tract. The tract can also be accessed from the west via Payne Road and from the north via Wooten Road. There is an extensive network of internal roads and ATV trails.
The tract has approximately 1,123 acres (49% of the tract) in well-stocked, merchantable pine plantation of varying ages from 16 to 38 years old. These stands will provide significant cash flow in the near future from thinning and harvests. There are also 326 +/- acres (14% of the tract) of premerchantable pine plantations that provide more varied wildlife habitat and long term cash flow.
All of the pine plantations have been planted with genetically improved planting stock. The tract generally has good site quality and will provide a good rate of return for an investor.
The tract has excellent wildlife habitat for deer and turkey. There are dozens of food plots, logging decks and brushy areas providing a variety of wildlife habitats, forage and cover. About 425 acres (19% of the tract) is in bottomland hardwood and SMZs plus an additional 103+/- acres (5% of the tract) of hardwood regeneration providing even more varied habitat for wildlife.
There are 78.5 acres (3% of the tract) that are in the process of being clearcut. Bloedel Forest will retain the cutting rights on this portion of the tract until the harvesting is complete. We expect the harvesting to be complete in the next few months, depending on weather.
The tract is certified under the American Tree Farm System. It is being offered on a lump sum basis and not by the acre.
