The pleasant rolling terrain of southern Cass County is the setting for this well-managed property, located in the old Pruett community 14 miles equidistant of Linden and Jefferson. This tract is well situated for the growing and marketing of timber, as well as a recreational getaway. Situated in the Caddo Lake watershed, the famous lake is only a half-hour drive from the property.
The approximately 92 acres of 20-year-old improved loblolly pine plantation is growing on sandy loam soils with a good productivity site index around 85. This land has been managed for the past twenty-three years as a timber investment property, and the latest science in site preparation and seedling sourcing was utilized in the reforestation.
The pine plantation is of good volume and quality, and was improvement thinned in 2012, so it is well on its way to next harvest opportunity. A timber volume estimate done immediately after the first thinning shows a good pine volume of about two and a quarter truck-loads per acre. Subsequent growth in the past five years has resulted in a substantial volume of standing pine timber growing on a site with better than average harvesting conditions.
Kouffmann Branch flows through the northwest corner of the property, providing shelter and water for wildlife on about 14 acres of hardwood and pine. This land is well suited for owner recreation and hunting, or it could readily be leased to generate income.
This land is access by driving two miles east of Highway 59 on FM Road 2683, then traveling one mile north on Cass County Road 1764 to a gated deeded access road to the west. The eastern boundary of the tract is 4/10ths of a mile from the county road. The tract boundaries have been maintained, being kept marked with blue paint and posted signs.
