There are approximately 27 acres of planted longleaf pines that have good stand populations and are within a few years of first harvest/ thinning. These are planted in formally cultivated fields which were not irrigated by the three center pivots on the farm. The soils are of high quality, and easily converted back to row crop, pasture, or orchards upon the harvest of the longleaf pines.
