The Barr Chapel Road Woodland is a beautiful 63 acre tract offering great timber potential recreational opportunities in Edgefield County, South Carolina. This tract features a high proportion of planted loblolly pine that is 23 years old that has been thinned once in 2016. This tract also features a small stream surrounded by older natural pine and hardwood.
The Barr Chapel Road Woodland is located within the western South Carolina Piedmont region and is surrounded by other woodland tracts owned by a variety of ownership types. Deer and turkey hunting, as well as timber production, dominate the land use in this region. The property is 26 miles north of Augusta, Georgia and its airport that is serviced by major airlines. The tract is also 76 miles west of Columbia, South Carolina and 90 miles south of Greenville, South Carolina. The
woodland is located in Edgefield County and is only 8 miles west of the town of Edgefield. Edgefield is home to the headquarters of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
The property has road frontage on Barr Chapel Road, which is a gravel road that is well maintained by Edgefield County. The tract also contains internal forest roads, one of which mostly follows the western boundary of the tract nearly to the northern end. The other internal road leads to an opening on the eastern side of the tract. The boundaries are well marked with blue paint on trees near the boundary line.
Barr Chapel Road Woodland has excellent habitat for deer and turkey, which provides an opportunity for recreational hunting. Three open areas exist on the property that are ready to be converted to wildlife food plots. While the understory vegetation is beginning regrowth, open vistas remain in the tract for wildlife viewing.
The Barr Chapel Road Woodland contains 61 acres of improved Loblolly pine type that was planted in 1997. The planted pine area was thinned in early 2016. An
understory “woody release” treatment was applied after the thinning to reduce sweetgum and other competing vegetation within the planted pine area. The timber now contains significant small sawtimber, as well as pulpwood timber products. Older naturally regenerated hardwood and pine timber exists along the ephemeral stream near the center of the tract.
