Tobesofkee Timberlands 620 is a highly productive pine timberland property ideally suited for a buyer seeking diversified attributes that include:
Tobesofkee Timberlands 620 is located in the western edge of Monroe County, Georgia, of which Forsyth is the county seat. Monroe County is just North of Macon and is considered the beginning of the Piedmont area of Georgia that runs toward Atlanta to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Georgia.
Monroe County has long been recognized as one of the most desirable counties in Central Georgia for residential, work, farms, timberland, and recreational hunting. The property is located in an area of beautiful cattle and horse farms but is immediately surrounded by well-managed timber properties. Its location and surroundings make it an ideal property for recreational hunting, as deer and turkey, abound across the property. Encountering deer and turkey by simply driving through the property is quite common.
Tobesofkee Creek borders the northwest boundary of the property, and there are other smaller creeks within its boundaries. The creek bottom harbors majestic hardwood species of oak, ash, hickory, poplar, and many others. These hardwood bottomlands also provide abundant and diverse food for wildlife.
The property is an easy drive from Interstate 75, although far enough to be completely isolated from the noise and traffic of that busy north-south artery. Being only one hour’s drive from Atlanta’s International Airport, twenty minutes from Macon, and ten minutes from Forsyth, it is amazing how quiet and tranquil the property's ambiance is.
Each March, Forsyth host the annual Forsythia Festival to celebrate the beautiful flower. The city offers a good government, schools, and health care providers, and its citizens have worked hard to make the town an attractive place to live and work. There is power available at Parks Road, although there are no electric utilities within the property.
Access to the property is provided by a deeded easement that will transfer to the new landowner with the purchase of the land. It is gated and locked and provides all -weather access, but it is very private. The easement is off of paved Parks Road, which runs between Brent Road and old US Hwy 41.
Internal roads are in excellent condition, with gravel applied to areas to facilitate all-weather travel in regular two-wheel drive vehicles. The internal roads provide access to all the upland pine plantations. Numerous ATV trails throughout the property provides access to almost all of the property, including trails to and throughout the creek bottomlands.
The property is well suited as an outstanding timberland ownership opportunity and recreational property. The property could be converted to pastures and even limited row crop agricultural uses due to the prominence of its upland, well-drained soils, and gently rolling terrain. If desired, the property could be used for a primary or secondary country estate. Since 2009, a hunting club has leased the property, and they have been careful stewards of the land and wildlife resources.
The Tobesofkee Timberlands 620 offers several age classes of planted pine ranging from 6 to 27 years old, which will provide the new owner with many opportunities to generate timber income over the years on the property. Approximately 80% of Tobesofkee Timberlands 620 are in these productive loblolly pine plantations, with the balance being in natural hardwoods of various ages. Current estimated timber volumes by main species groups and product classes are included in the property report.
