Sycamore Branch is the perfect mid-size property to fit a multitude of owner needs, including short term cash flow, long term timber value appreciation, and the ability to become a full-fledged agriculture property. This unique property in western Gadsden County has a huge diversity of land use types. There are approximately 85 acres of extremely productive planted loblolly and slash pines that will need additional thinning in just a few years or that could be clear cut and converted into pasture or cultivated land. There are 81 acres of natural pine timber that is ripe for harvesting and that could be converted to pasture or cultivation. Another 33 acres of planted longleaf pines produce annual income from the raking of straw, but could be converted to pasture or cultivation with very little effort. There are 73 acres of bahia grass fields that produce very good quality and quantities of hay, or that could be used for grazing since all the fields are fenced and cross fenced. The balance of the farm is hardwood timber areas, food plots, and a beautifully grassed area around a combination pole barn/apartment that is rented steadily producing good annual returns.
The current owner will entertain offers to divide the tract. The 133 acres comprising the north tract would consist of approximately 16 acres of mature pine, 33 acres of planted longleaf, 8 acres of upland hardwood, 73 acres of pasture (to be converted) and 3 acres around the pole barn and apartment. Access would be from Sycamore Road.
The south tract is roughly 177 acres, of which 75 acres are mature planted pine, 8 acres is food plots and 94 acres is mixed hardwood and pine. Access would be from Brandi Boulevard.
The owner has applied for grant money to convert the pasture into a longleaf plantation. The money received for the site prep and planting is transferable.
The asking price is per acre for either tract, pending county approval of subdivision.
