39 ACRES SOUTH PARCEL SHELBY COUNTY, TEXAS

Posted on: January 30th, 2024

This is an attractive property with a nice bottomland on a perennial creek and uplands in its southern area. This land would be excellent for a weekend place, a hunting camp or just for growing timber. It has excellent county road access; is a half hour or less from medical care and shopping; located in a quiet rural area with few scattered neighbors; and has highly productive well-drained bottomland soils supporting a native pine and hardwood forest.

Known locally as the Sand Hills area, the well-drained sandy soils support species such as American holly, beech, post oak, red and Florida maple and basswood. The creeks are sandy-bottomed, with a fair-sized wet weather creek running south to north from the south boundary to Brady Creek, which is a good-sized perennial stream along the proposed northern boundary. The understory is fairly open and it is easy to traverse this land on foot. The wildlife habitat is in good condition given the native mixed-species forest and Brady Creek.

The forest has been carefully managed since 1957, with thinning harvests being done with an eye to long term management, most being selectively marked by a professional forester. The forest is dominated by scattered patches of large, high-quality pine sawtimber, moderate numbers of smaller-sized pine and hardwood trees and a decent component of young pine and hardwood. There are several dense patches of larger pine sawlogs that have heavy volumes per acre.

The combination of native species such as white oak, cherrybark red oak, water oak, black oak, loblolly pine and sweetgum provide multiple forest management opportunities, current cash flow potential and future timber growth prospects. The well-drained sandy loam creek bottom soils along Brady Creek comprise 55% of this parcel, and are highly productive sites for growing timber. The rest of the property is upland sandy loams that are also good soils for forest growth.

The quality and quantity of young white oak and red oak trees on this property really caught this foresters eye given what hardwood sawtimber markets have done on the past few decades, favoring the better-quality hardwoods could be a reasonable long-term management strategy for this land.

This Property being offered is the portion of a 76.978-acre tract located south of Brady Creek, which will make up its northern and western boundary. The acreage of this to-be-surveyed Southern Parcel has been estimated at about 39 acres, but will require a new survey to determine the exact acreage. Prospective buyers should be aware that the final acreage could vary beyond 10% of the estimate. The approximately 37.9 acres laying north of Brady Creek is also being offered for sale separately. If both parcels are still available, the sellers would consider a consolidated offer.

Please note the mapping provided in the downloadable documents section, as well as the original deed to the parent 76.978-acre tract. The eastern boundary is County Road 1036; the western and northern boundary is Brady Creek; the southern boundary is unmarked through the woods. About 1,600 feet of County Road 1036 is the eastern boundary, running from Brady Creek at the concrete-and-steel bridge south to the southeastern corner in the vicinity of a T-post in the western road ditch.

This property is located a short drive from supplies, shopping and health care in Center. The land is about four miles off of Highway 96 six miles south of Center, with all but the last half-mile of the county roads being oil-topped.
This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation on the taxes. Land taxes on the entire 76.978 acres using the Shelby Appraisal District 2023 Tax records are shown as $249.51 with timber/ag exemptions. Land may be subject to agricultural or other valuations that may be subject to roll back taxes if the use of the land is changed or a new application for such valuation is not tendered to the appropriate appraisal district by the purchaser. Land use valuation status is tied to the landowner, not to the land. Seller nor TerraStone Land Company can guarantee qualification for any special use valuations. A purchaser will be responsible to verify tax status, rollback provisions, and/or apply for Ag/Timber Valuation at the County Appraisal District.

172.7 Acres Nacogdoches County Texas

Posted on: December 13th, 2023

This impressive legacy property from a family that has been in Nacogdoches County since the mid-1800s has a great mix of rich creek bottoms and uplands forested with pine plantations and native hardwoods. Two major perennial streams are the centerpiece of this land, with Little Loco Bayou flowing the length of the property north to south, and with Caney Bayou cutting across the southwest corner. The eastern boundary is along County Road 841 (Red Wilson Road) with an electric power line along the west side of the road. This property is located a fifteen-minute drive to supplies, shopping and health care in Nacogdoches, being west of town off of Highway 21.

For hunters and naturalists this is a remarkable woodland with a nice diversity of towering trees with an open understory that is easy to traverse on foot contrasted by areas of dense shrub habitat. There are good opportunities for hunting or just observing wildlife in the uncommonly tall and dense pine plantations and bottomland hardwoods along the creeks.

The creek bottom areas have outstanding unthinned pine plantation around 25 to 27 years old, with extraordinary heights in the high site index soils. A rough guesstimate of total pine volume in these good pine stands suggests a potential of four or more loads of pine timber per acre. Some of the pine trees growing in these deep, well-drained soils appear to possibly be powerline-pole quality. These plantations are definitely ready for a first thinning harvest and offer the prospect of near-term cash flow as well as future timber growth prospects. The bottomland Hannahatchee soils make up over half of the Property along Little Loco and Caney Bayous, with a small section of Tuscosso clay in the southwestern corner along Caney Bayou.

The uplands are the fine sandy loams in the Cuthbert, Alto, Sacul and Kirvin series. These are good, well-drained upland soils for growing both hardwood and pine. The planted pines are more scattered and in pockets in the uplands, with hardwoods and shrubs intermixed, affording a diverse wildlife habitat that is favorable for whitetail deer.

A previously-unknown easement not referenced in the Sellers 1972 deed is described in an adjacent-property deed as being located 900 feet north of the south boundary line of the 172.2 acre tract. The Aerial Photo Creek Easement map in the download document section shows the approximate location as described. Note that this is an illustration only, it is not guaranteed in any manner. The easement appears at this point to have not been developed or used based on aerial photographs and a lack of known evidence on the ground. The describing deed is also included in the download document section.

The internal woods road system starts at a gate near the center of the east boundary at the county road and leads to Little Loco Bayou. Currently there is not a stream crossing for vehicles, but the woods road system continues on the west side of the property. These roads need some cleaning out of deadfalls and underbrush where the small trees have taken root, but in general they appear in good shape. The need for the first thinning of the pine plantation offers a source of income for reestablishing a vehicular crossing on Little Loco if so desired. I was able to easily cross the creek and walk the property.

The forests on this property make up 96% of the land and have a wide assortment of species including loblolly pine, white oak, American beech, white ash, shortleaf pine, water oak, black oak, sweetgum, southern red oak, American elm, Florida maple, American holly, cherrybark red oak, shagbark hickory, blackgum, pawpaw, black walnut, southern red oak, black cherry, mulberry and hornbeam.

The timber asset is a combination of planted loblolly pine and native bottomland hardwood timber. The chart in the download documents is an estimate of the various acreages in several timber types. The Good Pine areas are primarily the bottomland pine plantation. The Pine Hardwood areas are on upland sites with a mix of planted and native pine and hardwood. The Hardwood areas include the bottomlands along the two streams. A small section of the land is in the county road with a small strip east of the road. The gas well site rounds out this table. These timber types are shown on the mapping on the Timber Type and Woods Road map.

The mapping is offered as a general guide as to the location and nature of the property, but no guarantee is made as to the exact location of boundaries or features, timber type or any acreage estimates.

This property of approximately 172.7 acres is offered at $3,995 per acre or $689,936.

The Sellers are retaining all owned oil & gas minerals.
No owner financing is available.
This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation. According to the Nacogdoches Appraisal District 2023 Tax records, the taxes are estimated at $405 with timber/ag exemptions, and at $10,273 without timber/ag exemptions. Buyers should be aware of roll-back provisions if land use is changed, or the new owner fails to apply and/or qualify for ag/timber exemption.
The current appraisal district mapping appears to be incorrect, as the deed description and in-field evidence shows the southeastern corner of the property to be east of the county road. The northeast corner is west of the county road. This is not a legal or recent survey-derived statement, but an observation of the on-the-ground evidence and interpretation of the deed calls and is not guaranteed.
Electric Power (believed to be Oncor) is present on the Property along the west side of CR 841.
No improvements, buildings, or deer blinds are included in the offering other than the existing gate on the woods road entrance.
Approximately 2,300 feet of frontage along CR 841 along its eastern boundary.
Most residents in the area are believed to be on septic systems.
Community water service area boundary is indicated about 500 feet to the south on CR 841 and is shown to be D & M Water Supply Corporation (936) 559-9900 PO Box 9, 111 Buck Alley, Douglass, TX 75943. The Lilly Grove Special Utility District boundary is indicated to be about a half mile north of the Property on CR 841. 7435 FM 1638 Nacogdoches, TX 75964, (936)-569-9292 See the Water Service Boundary map.
All of Nacogdoches County groundwater is subject to the rules of the Pineywoods Groundwater Conservation District. Information concerning water well drilling can be found at: pgcd.org
Douglass ISD School District.
The Soil Map shows the FEMA floodplain along Little Loco Bayou and Caney Bayou.
There is one known gas gathering pipeline on this Property running from the active well in the southeastern corner to the northwest corner, as shown on the mapping. It is believed to have been bored underneath the Little Loco stream and bottomland and does not show above-ground location.
There is one active gas well on the Property, and one permitted location approved in 2008, as shown on the mapping. No activity is evident at the permitted location.

Posted on: November 23rd, 2023

This land has a wonderful mix of native hardwood and pine with a very natural look. Whether developed into a wooded subdivision or utilized as an ideal single-residence hideaway with forested buffer space, this tract stands out in that it is neither cutover brush or pine plantation.

The nice native forest is primarily tall loblolly pine, scenic post oaks, large-crowned red and water oaks, with a mix of blackgum, sweetgum and elm.

22.61 acres in Rusk County, Texas

Posted on: October 26th, 2023

A secluded spot for a retirement home or a weekend getaway that is only 10 miles southeast of Henderson on an all-weather county road, this approximately 22.61 acres has excellent access, nice gentle terrain, a diverse native forest, and a beautiful spring-fed branch along the back boundary. The native forest has a mix of pine and hardwoods, and was last harvested in the early 1990s according to the owner. The property is suitable for hunting, with plenty of sign of whitetail deer, feral hogs and squirrels.

The native forests on this property have a wide assortment of species including loblolly and shortleaf pine, white oak, black cherry, ash, shortleaf pine, water oak, black oak, sweetgum, southern red oak, American elm, Florida maple, American holly, cherrybark red oak, mulberry and hornbeam.

The very fine sandy loam soils are excellent for growing both pine and hardwood. The future owner will have several land management options on this property; a thinning harvest; a total harvest and replant; or allowing the forest to continue to grow for future harvesting. The terrain and soils also appear that they would be suitable for establishing pasture.

This land lays along and on the west side of the county road, offering excellent access. The approximate 22.61 acres includes an estimated half an acre or so in the county road right-of-way. Tax roll data and deeds show 26.4 acres, but the land offered in this sale does not include the 3.79 acres east of the county road.

51.7 Acres, Rusk County, Texas

Posted on: October 26th, 2023

This 51.7 acres of pleasantly rolling, well-drained land offers an excellent combination of pasture and forest, potential house sites, beautiful upland creeks, good recreational opportunities, and convenient access. Located a few miles north of the Caledonia community, only 15 minutes from either Mt. Enterprise or Timpson, and 30 minutes from Nacogdoches, Carthage or Henderson, this land is perfectly situated to be that get-away spot that so many folks are looking for in todays world. This is an ideal upland site on which to build a weekend cabin or a country home. It offers a very nice setting with good privacy, easy access, and several potential land management options from which to choose.

The roughly 18 acres of pastureland includes the front 14-acre field that should be suitable for hay production. The land is fenced and currently leased for cattle grazing. The lease could be maintained with the current leasee, or terminated at the Buyers discretion. The leasee has done a good job in maintaining the property. This could be an ideal property to graze cattle, cut hay, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country life.

The spring-fed sandy-bottomed creek along the eastern boundary has about a 500-acre watershed, and according to a lifelong resident, has always flowed to some degree even in dry weather. This creek provides water for livestock. The available mapping does not indicate a FEMA floodplain on this land.

The loamy fine sandy soil is suitable for growing grass or pine trees, while the sandy loam along the creeks grows good pine and hardwood timber. This native forest contains a wide variety of loblolly and shortleaf pine, white oak, red oak, sweetgum, elm, holly, blackgum, hickory and elm. One outstanding old post oak at the edge of the northern pasture and the head of a branch is a notable character tree, and is worth a stop to admire.

The forested areas have been thinned years ago, and currently appear to be growing well. The soils in this area have a history of good wet-weather timber harvesting capability. A buyer would have options in terms of an immediate harvest and replant, a thinning, or just letting it grow for future harvesting. Of course, the fields could be a candidate for reforestation.

Cattle grazing has afforded excellent vegetation control in the forest understory, giving this land a park-like appearance in the woods. The white oaks and other hardwoods along the creek drains are really scenic areas, and would make a dramatic background for a home place. Several ridges in between the forested branches offer secluded spots for a home, while retaining ready access to the county roads.

In terms of hunting, there are openings in various locations that are excellent for setting up blinds and feeders. The pipeline easement, fields and wide-open woods along the creek drains offer nice hunting areas. Lake Murvaul is ten minutes to the north on FM 1971.

Located at the old Eulalie lumbering community north of present-day Caledonia, this property has a long history of small-farm settlements from the 1880s. Having a post office in the 1890s, being home to 150 people with stores, churches, a physician and a school, the community was renamed Bryce in the latter 1900s as the population decreased to the few dozen living in the area today.

The property features long frontages on hard-topped County Road 3251 on its south, and the graded sandy County Road 3252 on its west side. There is easy access to FM 1971 (.35 of a mile) and US Hwy 84 (1.9 miles). The Property has excellent internal access across fields and along the pipeline right-of-way.

There is a gate at the northwestern corner on CR 3252 at the pipeline right-of-way, the main gate at the southwest corner at the intersection of the two county roads, and one gate south of the barn on CR 3251 in the southeastern corner of the main field. An old barn is located on the eastern side of the 14-acre main field, and has some old corral fencing in the back. With a bit of cleanup and work it appears that it will be functional.

This deed-described 51.7 acres is offered at $3,900 per acre, with the boundary lines in all probability requiring a resurvey for refining the boundary description to modern standards. Seller is retaining all owned oil & gas minerals.

This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation on the taxes, which for 2020 show to have been $63.89 with the Ag/Timber reduction.

Electric Power on and across property
