Beautiful timber and recreation property at an amazing price. $1,315/acre!
VERY COOL! This is an amazing property on so many levels. 1,140 acres that not only is a forestry investment but also a recreation paradise. Hunting, camping, hiking and trail riding are some of the more obvious activities. It is a mountain biker's and ATVer's dream property miles and miles of primitive roads and trails. Last time out, we saw elk, deer and fresh bear tracks! There is a feel to this property that's truly special. If nothing else the peace and serenity of your time spent on the property will be rewarding. Build your off-the grid lodge or cabin(s). The Seller has developed an idyllic compound with a shop, cabins, RV hookup and a small lake on an adjacent parcel they are keeping. There are many beautiful locations where you could do something similar. There are two seasonal ponds and a perennial stream. Plenty of sun for solar power!
The timber lends itself to sustainable selective harvests. Natural regeneration is sufficient over much of the property so that, with sound selective harvest and group selection harvest practices, reforestation will generally not be required. Reforestation is free thanks to Mother Nature! Predominant species are Douglas-fir, Incense cedar and Jeffery pine. There are some Jeffery pine plantations that are doing beautifully as well as a few areas of Douglas-fir plantations.
While this is not a prime timber growing site, there is considerable value in the timber. There is currently an estimated 2,600 MBF (thousand board feet) of merchantable timber on the property and over 1,000 acres of productive timber land. There will be a continuous and steady flow of timber that is growing into merchantable size. The long-term potential for timber production, and income, is tremendous. This is timber country. There are several lumber mills and a plywood plant within 7 miles of the property in Riddle, OR. You can't get a much shorter log haul than that! There are several more log markets in Roseburg and Dillard, also a relatively short haul.
Think Eastern Oregon, Northern Idaho and Western Montana forest types! There is very easy access from I-5. Take exit 103 at Riddle, Oregon and be on your ranch in less than 30 minutes!
Security is a huge bonus! There is a guard shack that is manned 24/7 that controls access to the mineral processing plant lower on the access road. The properties beyond the gate are not accessible to the general public. At only $1,499,000 - just $1,315/acre - it just may be the opportunity of a lifetime!
