This tract is well suited to meet several ownership objectives, as it possesses five different timber types ranging from a recently harvested “clean-slate” to merchantable timber with harvest or improvement options. Its timber diversity is also a bonus for wildlife. It also has several water amenities, including High Pine Creek, a major tributary of the Tallapoosa River, that flows directly across the tract.
Pittman Tract is located in the rolling hills of mid-east Alabama. It is in a rural setting off County Road 310, just north of the City of Roanoke within Randolph County, Alabama.
There is approximately 2,100 feet of frontage on CR 310. Internal access is provided by logging roads and ATV/UTV trails.
The tract has a diverse nature, accommodating both timber production and wildlife management. Proximity to power and amenities in nearby Roanoke make a home site an attractive option.
The tract has 59 acre of recently harvested acreage ready for replanting or other possible improvements. It also has 30 acres of recently thinned pine plantation, 81 acres of 9-year-old plantation that is maturing well, and natural timber that adds to its diversity and contributes to its wildlife value.
High Pine Creek flows through the western portion of the tract. It is a wide, well-watered tributary of the Tallapoosa. There are also two smaller creeks that flow through the center portions of the tract and come together in the southern area to form one creek. The tract is rich in water!
This property has excellent diversity for this small an acreage with several different timber types, all commercially manageable. If managed right, it could produce some level of timber income every 4 to 6 years. And, with the existence of the creeks, ROW openings and the diverse timber types, it is well poised to be a special wildlife property.
