Exceptional is a good word to describe this readily-accessible property that offers uplands and bottomlands in a delightful combination of forest and field. Located on a ridge running along the Wanders Creek bottomland, this property is close to evenly divided between pastures, pine plantations and native hardwood forests. It is unusual to find such a tract located a twenty-minute drive from Nacogdoches and being easily accessed on a state FM road.

This property is being offered in conjunction with other land, one parcel being the 386 acres contiguous with its south boundary, and a 466-acre parcel resulting from combining this 386 acres with 80 acres further south on the west side of FM 95. Both of these parcels are very similar in character, having a mix of native and planted pine, pastures, and outstanding hardwood forests. The 154 acres and 466 acres are offered either separately or in combination as a very nice 620-acre land holding offering timber production, cattle lease income, and recreational opportunities.

This forester has over forty years of experience managing southern forests, and this is one outstanding property from the forest management and recreational aspect. The approximately 33-year-old loblolly pine plantation is maturing into a good size sawtimber stand. The approximately 16-year-old loblolly pine plantation just had its first thinning harvest a few years ago.

This land offers an owner hunting, riding trails, walking open woodlands, observing wildlife, growing good pine and hardwood timber, and the enjoyment of a nice hardwood forest. Over much of the property, the understory is semi- to fully open and is easy to traverse on foot. Cattle have been run on this property for many years, and are still present, assisting in keeping the forest understory in good condition. Access across Wanders Creek is by a bridge believed to be located on the Garrett West 154 acre tract.

About 60% of the soils on this property is Eastwood very fine sandy loam, which is a very good upland soil for growing commercial forests. The balance is the Marietta soils in the Wanders Creek bottom, and is one of the highest-producing soils in the southern U.S. for both pine and hardwood trees, and makes good pasture, according to the USDA NRCS soils survey. This soil has a very high site index of 100, which is a commonly-used measure of tree growth potential.

The Wanders Creek bottomlands as well as the area along FM 95 contain 52 acres of bottomland and upland hardwoods. These areas provide good wildlife habitat as well as some timber production.

The habitat types on this property are as follows (all acreages are approximate):

45 acres of pastures and fields, with 41 acres being bottomland and 7 acres upland.
52 acres of native hardwood with some native pine
30 acres of older loblolly pine plantation (approx. 1988 planting)
26 acres of younger loblolly pine plantation (approx. 2005 planting)
1 acre of roads and openings

The native forests on this property have a wide assortment of species including loblolly pine, white oak, beech, ash, shortleaf pine, water oak, black oak, sweetgum, southern red oak, American elm, Florida maple, American holly, cherrybark red oak, swamp chestnut oak, southern red oak, black cherry, mulberry and hornbeam. In addition to these, cedar elm, overcup oak, shagbark and pignut hickory, bitter pecan, river birch, black walnut, pawpaw and blackgum are several of the species found in the bottomland areas.

The mapping is offered as a general guide as to the location of the property, but no guarantee is made as to the exact location of these boundaries.
