The majority of the property is in well stocked plantation producing a significant current and future income. A projection of the timber under a two-thin and harvest regime indicated an 8% internal rate of return on the timber assets on the property. The 2005-2007 plantations could be first-thinned now. The 40 acres of natural premerch are areas that were planted adjacent to the stream-side- management zones that had poor survival but contribute to the recreational aspect of the property.
The property has a 580-square foot hunting cabin in good shape, and a 600 square foot barn, both located on the edges of the 36 acre field. The property with the variety of land classes, a good road system and manageable terrain makes it ideal for hunting in conjunction with the timber management.
