This land is unique in todays market, combining recreational opportunities, older native timber and a diverse ecology. This land has a mix of uplands and bottomlands with outstanding native forests, and has an 11-acre field. The timber assets present an immediate cash flow opportunity and future timber growth prospects. For hunters and nature lovers interested in native bottomland hardwoods, this is an outstanding hunting and recreational property with a combination of forest and field and excellent county road access. This land offers great opportunities for hunting, enjoyment of open woodlands, observing wildlife, and the enjoyment of an uncommonly mature native upland pine and bottomland hardwood forest. Over much of the property, the understory is semi- to fully open and is easy to traverse on foot. There are potential upland building locations in the uplands on ridges and high plateau areas that would appear to be suitable for building. This property is located a twenty-minute drive from supplies, shopping and health care in Nacogdoches.

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.

In addition to the older forests, the bottomlands north and west of the open field are young hardwoods that have naturally reforested about six acres of field. North of Naconiche Creek along Wanders Creek is another five acres of old field that is now populated with young, vigorously growing hardwoods. These young areas have sweetgum, water oak, willow oak, cherrybark oak, bitter pecan and ash as the primary species, with a small number of loblolly pines.

The timber asset is a combination of mature native upland pine and bottomland hardwood timber. An available timber inventory report was completed in October 2022. The merchantable timber value data based on the 71-acre area south and west of Naconiche Creek, to include the uplands, is estimated at around $1325 per acre on 58 merchantable forested acres. There are impressive stands of very tall, high-grade native pines on about 32 acres of the well-drained southwestern uplands. The roughly 85 acres north of Naconiche Creek is primarily made up of bottomland hardwood forest, with the timber inventory report indicating about $800 per acre in 2022 timber value. About 1.5 acres of an unthinned loblolly pine plantation is slated to be included in this parcel along the northern boundary line.

This Property has two major perennial streams, Naconiche and Wanders Creeks, with smaller Bohannon Branch in the northwestern portion. Approximately 124 acres are in the bottomland Marietta loam and Iulus fine sandy loam soils, which are some of the highest-producing soils in the southern U.S. for both pine and hardwood trees.

The balance of the Property has the upland Sacul, Cuthbert and Eastwood fine sandy loams, being good, well-drained upland soils for growing both hardwood and pine. The southwestern uplands have interesting topography, with a wet-weather stream channel running parallel to the county road through the area.

The approximately 11-acre open field has a roughly 5-acre hay pasture. This open ground could continue to be utilized, or could be readily converted into food plots and/or planted with pine or hardwood trees.

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. This parcel is being divided out of a larger parcel, and is slated for boundary surveying. The 156-acre area is estimated only, based on Appraisal District information using GIS and aerial photo interpretation, deed call information and ground checks of a few assumed corner and line markers. It lies west of Wanders Creek and north of County Road 280, with road frontage on CR 280 beginning on west side of the Naconiche Creek Bridge.

This property of approximately 156 acres is offered at $3,708 per acre or $578,380.

The Sellers are retaining all owned oil & gas minerals. There may be additional prior reservations of oil & gas minerals and associated surface access rights.

No seller financing is available.

This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation on the taxes. Land taxes using the Nacogdoches Appraisal District 2023 Tax records are estimated at $459.71 on 156 acres with timber/ag exemptions, and are estimated at $9,491.48 without timber/ag exemptions on 156 acres. 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.
These estimates are based on a per-acre rough calculation, as the 156-acre property is being divided out of a 515-acre tract that had $1519.29 in taxes with exemptions, and estimated taxes of $31,368.15 without exemptions.
