The property consists of 684 acres of which an estimated 283 acres are in mature hardwood stands along Spring Creek and its tributaries. Significant hardwood hammocks provide abundant browse and hard mast for wildlife. There are an estimated 213 acres in upland planted pines of various ages and 185 acres of old field planted pine stands including various age classes. Open areas and food plots make up the balance of the remaining 2 acres.
The timber on the property includes various ages and species of planted pine and natural hardwood stands. The hardwoods consist of typical southern upland and bottomland species.
Based on a growth analysis on the merchantable planted pine stands, a substantial amount of the small sawtimber tons will transition into the large sawtimber class over the next 5 years. This transition of product class along with physical growth will result in a very attractive return over the projection period.
