The habitat diversity is excellent on this property having multiple timber types, lots of edge habitat, significant openings, and aesthetic gently rolling topography with two small drains. The seller owns a larger tract nearby and is not using this property enough to keep it, so this is your opportunity to purchase a hard to find, quality, ready to hunt property under 100 acres.
One thing that makes this property truly unique is the tract is +-99% upland and operable for planted pines, conversion to agriculture, homesites, and/or any other suitable use that requires good upland ground. At the same time a premium water source, clear and strong running Pessell Creek, is only +-500 west of the property. Pessell Creek, which flows year-round, is well known to hold quality deer and other wildlife. So, with this tract you get the wildlife advantages of a creek bottom being immediately next door, yet practically every acre on the tract is productive upland ground with prime farmland soils and soils of statewide importance.
