Exceptional is a good word to describe this readily-accessible property that offers uplands and bottomlands in a delightful combination of forest and field. Blessed with two major perennial streams, Naconiche and Wanders Creeks, and the smaller Bohannon Branch and Dog Creek, this property is close to evenly divided between bottomland and upland soils. It is unusual to find such a tract located a twenty-minute drive from Nacogdoches and being easily accessed on a state FM road. This property is being offered in conjunction with two other contiguous parcels, one being approximately 154 acres along its’ north boundary, and an approximately 80-acre parcel along its southeast boundary, filling in with FM 95 on the east and County Road 280 for a south boundary. Both of these parcels are very similar in character, having a mix of native and planted pine, pastures, and outstanding hardwood forests. All are offered either separately or in combination – this block of three parcels will make a very nice 620-acre land holding offering timber production, cattle lease income, and recreational opportunities. Another 53-acre parcel is offered for sale on the east side of FM 95, and has young ready-to-thin pine plantation and native creek bottom hardwoods. This forester has over forty years of experience managing southern forests, and this is one outstanding property from the forest management and recreational aspect. The approximately 33-year-old loblolly pine plantation is maturing into a good size sawtimber stand. The approximately 16-year-old loblolly pine plantation appears to probably be ready for its’ first thinning harvest. Both of these pine stands should offer good timber growth for the near future for the investor. An available independent timber inventory report completed in November 2019 estimated about $1,083 per acre in standing merchantable timber value, and that was two growing seasons ago. This land offers an owner hunting, riding trails, walking open woodlands, observing wildlife, growing good pine and hardwood timber, and the enjoyment of a nice hardwood forest. I observed deer, ducks, squirrels and hogs during forest reconnaissance on this land. Over much of the property, the understory is semi- to fully open and is easy to traverse on foot. Cattle have been run on this property for many years, and are still present, assisting in keeping the forest understory in good condition. The approximately 203 acres of Marietta soils in the creek bottoms is one of the highest-producing soils in the southern U.S. for both pine and hardwood trees, and makes good pasture, according to the USDA NRCS soils survey. This soil has a very high site index of 100, which is a commonly-used measure of tree growth potential. The balance of the property has 183 acres of Eastwood very fine sandy loam, which is a good upland soil for growing both hardwood and pine. The Naconiche Creek bottomland hardwood forest encompasses about 83 acres in the southwestern portion of the tract. These bottomlands were previously harvested, except in the lowest lying sloughs, and have regenerated into a good hardwood forest. Carefully executed improvement thinnings could assist in the future development of the timber resource in this particular bottomland hardwood forest. Bohannon Branch has about 20 acres of hardwood streamside forest, along with 12 associated acres of native pine. The eastern Wanders Creek and Dog Creek bottoms as well as the area along FM 95 contain 63 acres of bottomland and upland hardwoods. These forests will offer the potential for both wildlife habitat and timber production, and have some outstanding large-sized trees.
