The aesthetic +-351 acre Olive tract has been in the same family for generations, is an excellent timber investment opportunity, and is a quality hunting property. The tract is heavily timbered with fully stocked +-25 year old natural pine with some hardwood that has never been thinned, with several creek bottoms with mature mixed hardwood. There is a thorough road network, beautiful homesites, potential pond/lake sites, ample road frontage, and power on property. With rock quarries nearby, this timber tract is great candidate for a permanent conservation easement. The site index for natural loblolly pine at age 50 is strong +-86 feet according the Usda soil maps. Well located in the piedmont of GA on rolling topography just +-30 miles from Columbus GA, +-50 miles from Macon GA, +-75 miles from Atlanta GA, and +-300 miles from much of central Florida (as the crow flies).
PRIMARY Use: Timber, Hunting
PROPOSED/POTENTIAL Use: Timber, Hunting, Cabin or Home Sites, Pond or Lake Sites, Permanent Conservation Easement, Pasture or other agriculture, Rock and Sand Mining.
IMPROVEMENTS: Road system, hunting camp, power
TIMBER Resources: Mostly heavily stocked with pine and hardwood. Some young natural regen in the southeast corner from a 2017 tornado (that area will be ideal for thick wildlife cover for years to come, and eventually timber. Could be cleaned up and planted in pines).
AGRICULTURE Resources: N/A. There is significant acreage possibly suitable for pasture, and potentially some acreage for more intensive agriculture.
HUNTING Resources: Great deer and turkey hunting. Small game hunting. Talbot County is one of nine Georgia counties with antler restrictions, which attracts likeminded landowners and hunters that practice trophy management. In Talbot County, antlered bucks must have a minimum of 4 points, 1 in. or longer, on one side of the antlers. The property is currently leased to the same hunters for years. The hunting lease can be cancelled upon a sale if the buyer prefers, or the lease can be continued if the buyer prefers.
Crop Basis: N/A
