The acreage of Parker Tree Farm is almost equally divided between pine plantations of harvest age, and newly planted pines. There is also a 20-acre cultivatable field that could be planted to pines, used for row crops, or a nice field for dove hunting, which is historically very good in this area. The harvest age pines are from 20 years to 33 years old, and are ready for thinning or clear cut, depending on the purchaser’s preference. All of these stands have been managed according to best forestry practices to enhance the quality of the remaining trees. The soils and accessibility of the property make the timber available for harvest during most weather conditions.
