Located in northern Nacogdoches County in the community of Trawick, this deed-called 62.76 acres offers a unique timber investment in a rural location about fifteen minutes from town. It is somewhat unusual to find an unthinned plantation of this age and planting density on the market; most timberland offerings have already had a first thinning harvest, thus limiting the management options for the land buyer.

Delayed timing of the first thinning is important to allow pines to develop height and to naturally prune their limbs, thus aiding in growing good pine sawtimber trees. There are no magic ages at which a loblolly pine plantation must be thinned; if tree height growth is occurring the better the opportunity for good sawtimber in the future. This plantation offers the opportunity to work towards that goal, but it certainly could be first-thinned if that is the landowners desire and fits with their forest management goals. Landowners who understand long-term strategies for producing pine sawtimber should take a look at this property.

The unthinned approximately 14-year loblolly pine plantation was machine planted following harvesting and resulted in good overall survival. The number of trees per acre is a vital factor in growing good sawtimber trees, as the crowding of the trees is what results in better quality timber. This plantation has excellent stocking levels, as seen in the accompanying ground and aerial photographs.

The LaCerda clay loam occupies 90% of the site, with Kirvin fine sandy loam being 10% of the area in the northeastern corner. The USDA soil survey indicates a site index of 80 for these soils which is a measurement commonly used by foresters to describe the productivity of a site. Typically, this measurement is used to describe sites growing well-stocked even-aged forests. Site index is the average height of the dominant and codominant trees on the site, at a given base age, in this case 50 years.

The approximately 53 gross acres of plantation has a pipeline right-of-way through it and is the primary access through the plantation at this time. There is an active gas well on the land, with it and the entry road comprising about 2.3 acres along the northwest boundary. There is a boundary strip of primarily hardwood trees along the eastern and southern borders that makes up the rest of the acreage. The county road frontage is 175 feet wide, with a small pipeline running just off the east side of the county road. There is a small intermittent stream crossing the northeastern corner.

The northern boundary area has three-plus acres of native hardwood forest dominated by post oak and red oak, and offers a readily-accessible spot for a house or cabin. This land would appear suitable for a weekend place, or for a home with built-in recreation in the backyard. Electric power and community water are evident to be on adjacent properties, and Windstream fiber telephone is running along the west side of the county road; a check on the Windstream website indicates 100 mbps internet is available.
