Timber Description & Value Summary
Franklin County Tracts
The forest resource has been sustainably managed for decades. The result is a patchwork of high quality timber that is ready for harvest today, plus an abundance of desirable growing stock that will reach maturity in the next 2-3 decades. Of the several million board feet of timber ready for harvest—there are dense stands of yellow poplar and red oak growing in the coves with mixed oaks, hickory, and some white pine along the ridgetops. There is mature timber on every parcel, some of which is of exceptional quality. A network of old logging roads and skid trails is in place—with a few upgrades, this road network will help the next owner manage these forest assets.
