Prime timber investment opportunity. Recently thinned in 2022. Approximately 25+/- acres still needs to be thinned. This tract has substantial timber value now and will increase significantly in the future. Timber consists primarily of 25 – 35 year old pine. There are stands of hardwood, including bottomland hardwoods along the streams and upland oak stands. There are scattered stands of significantly older timber as well. All of this timber will increase significantly in value over the next 10+ years as more of it grows into larger sawtimber size class.

The 11+/- acres in fields have been farmed each year with soybeans for wildlife. Gated access is available from Hwy 96.
