Rarely does timber value, a large perennial stream, all-weather public road access, beautiful scenery, excellent recreational values, and relative remoteness occur within a half-hour drive of Nacogdoches, Carthage, and Henderson. The beauty of this dandy, easily-accessed, well-forested property cannot be overstated. Located a few miles north of Garrison in southern Rusk County, near the Arlam community, this is truly an outstanding parcel of land for a getaway spot to relax and enjoy the forests of East Texas. The secluded bottomlands and upland areas are very suitable for still hunting and archery, with plenty of sign of whitetail deer, feral hogs and squirrels.

Golondrina Creek is a major perennial stream with beautiful scenery along its banks, and is the eastern boundary of the property. The deed calls for the boundary line to be on the eastern/southern bank of Golondrino the right-bank down-stream, so full access is assured. The extraordinarily attractive pine and hardwood creek bottom forest covers about 15 acres, while the well-drained uplands contain about 17 acres. Some of the loblolly pines in this bottom are truly outstanding specimens, being 30-plus inches in diameter. The uplands include about 7 acres of loblolly pine plantation that was thinned once around 2005; the trees appear to be over 30 years old.
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, southern red oak, black cherry, mulberry and hornbeam.
There are small areas holding water on the toe of the hillside that contain blackgum, overcup oak and water hickory. Except in the plantation, the understory is semi- to fully open and is easy to traverse.

The loamy fine sandy soils are excellent for growing both pine and hardwood. The bottomland Laneville loam soils along Golondrina Creek are supporting an excellent hardwood pine forest. The upland Tenaha loamy fine sand soils appear to have a decent wet-weather timber harvesting capability. The future owner may possibly have several forest management options on this property; an improvement harvest; a total harvest and replant; or allowing the forest to continue to grow for a future timber harvest.

This deed-described 32 acres is offered at $4,300 per acre or $137,600. The boundary lines may possibly require a resurvey for refining the boundary description to modern standards. The Sellers are retaining all owned minerals. No seller financing is available. Hunting equipment such as feeders, trail cameras and blinds are not included in the sale.

Property boundaries appear to be the county road on the west, old fencing along the south line; it is deed-called to be the eastern bank of Golondrina Creek on the east line, and the north line is old flagging, some old blazes, and a timber type change where the timber on the land to the north was harvested in the past. The apparent northwest and southwest corner markers were located along the eastern side of the county road. No guarantees are made as to the exact location of these boundaries or corners. All provided mapping is based on CAD, GIS aerial photo interpretation using deed call information, and ground checks of Golondrina Creek and the assumed corner and line markers.

This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation on the taxes. A rough estimate would be about $125 per year; the appraisal district has inaccurate information concerning this particular parcel.
