Little River Bend is a timber land property ideally suited to the buyer in search of land for multiple uses. The property boasts many attributes, including mature planted Loblolly pines, excellent hunting opportunities with existing food plots, and all bordered by the Little River. This is a must-see timber property for sale, sitting right between Athens and Augusta, Georgia.
Little River Bend sits on the easternmost boundary of Taliaferro County. This area is located in the gently rolling hills of Georgia’s Piedmont region.
The Piedmont region has become well known for production of both native hardwood timber and pine plantations. The market in this area has also developed to utilize the many products coming from the variety of highly successful timber species.
The property is fifteen miles south of Washington, GA, which provides most of the amenities of a small city, including lodging, supplies, shopping and several dining options. Augusta is about one hour to the east of the tract, while Reynold’s Plantation at Lake Oconee is approximately one hour to the southwest.
To reach the tract from Washington, take Highway 47 south from town. Take Branham Road to Lundburg Road to Lower Mill Road and travel to its end. Lower Mill Road is a county-maintained, paved road.
The property is accessed by a short easement road through the adjoining landowner.
The southern boundary follows a defined natural hardwood timber stand. The western boundary is not definitively marked, however it does follow a tree line and internal woods trail.
The entirety of the northern and eastern boundaries are formed by the Little River. At this point, the river stretches nearly 25 yards across. This unique bend in the river also serves as the boundary line between Taliaferro and Wilkes Counties, Georgia.
The scenic terrain of this tract is characteristic of the foothills of the Piedmont region. The highest point on the property is 450' close to the western boundary. The property then rolls gently away toward the east and down to just under 400' along the Little River.
Little River Bend is an upland planted pine timber land. Soils here consist of mainly Georgeville, with some Cataula-Cecil complex as well as Chewacla and Congree. Given the productive nature of the soils in this area, the property is surrounded by forested timber land.
There are many signs of wildlife making use of, or crossing through, the tract. With plenty of cover and abundant water resource, this is an ideal place for an outdoorsman to hike, hunt, fish, or just get away.
Several sites on the property would be well suited to build a weekend retreat or woodland cabin.
Eighty percent of the timberland can be managed as productive forestland. Currently, there are 194 acres of thinned, 37-year-old planted loblolly pine, with an additional 8 acres of 59-year-old loblolly pine.
There are 45 acres of mixed natural hardwoods containing significant volume. While some of the hardwood volume falls in SMZs the majority is harvestable, depending on future management goals.
A variety of timber products can be harvested from the property.
