The Milltown Tract is set in the heart of some of the best hunting land in Chambers County, has a very productive young pine plantation as well as strong residential options. The property is located in the piedmont region of mid-east Alabama where the landscape is gently rolling hills with predominantly clay soils. The property exists as two parcels within a half of a mile of each other. The property is just off of Alabama State Highway 77, which connects with US Highway 431, a major north-south corridor connecting Interstate 20 to the north with Interstate 85 to the south.
The Milltown Tract is a blended offering with opportunity for the avid recreationist combined with long term timber investment prospects. The tract offers rolling terrain with well-drained soils that are productive for timber. Williams Creek, a major drainage for the area, borders the parcel. Because of its road frontage and direct access to power, the parcel is prime for future residential development. In fact, for the restoration enthusiast, this parcel has an old home that has been vacant for many years. We cannot attest to its condition, but it may be a candidate for renovation. For hunters, this area boasts excellent deer, turkey and rabbit hunting. Existing trails could be reopened and game food plots established creating an ideal hunting retreat.
The merchantable timber that exists on the Milltown Tract is in the lowlands and bottomlands that adjoin the creeks and streams where harvest is somewhat limited. State Best Management Practices for Forestry do allow some harvest within these areas so we use the old inventory to represent this value. There is no timber inventory data available. In addition to the merchantable timber, and perhaps more importantly, the property acreage is dominated by a young loblolly pine plantation. The value attributed to the PREMERCHANTABLE pine plantations on the Milltown Tract is $10,880.
