117 Ac - Houston County - Love Tract
117 acres in Houston County, Alabama
Listing Status: Sold
The Love tract is an outstanding timber investment and recreational tract in Northeast Houston County midway between the small towns of Webb and Columbia. Conveniently located less than 20 minutes from the Ross Clark Circle in Dothan, the Love Tract consists of 117 acres of merchantable pine plantation with some hardwoods and two creeks. Surrounded by farmland and woods, this tract provides a quiet and peaceful setting and would be a great property to build a country homestead or a nice hunting camp. It is level to gently rolling, has been managed to maximize timber production, and has both paved and dirt road frontage with power available at the road. This is a high-quality timber tract that offers great hunting and any number of options on which to build.
The Loblolly pines were planted in the early to mid-90’s, have been thinned twice, and are now at or approaching the sawtimber stage. Other than the creek bottoms, the entire tract is in planted pines. Prescribed burns have been used to effectively manage the competition so most of the understory is relatively open and easy to walk. There are already wild quail on the property and the plantation is at the stage of maturity that could provide ideal habitat for a quail preserve. It has one-quarter mile of paved road frontage on JD Love Road and a half mile of frontage on Sigma Pit Road (dirt). Good internal trails provide access to most of the tract.
The Love tract offers great wildlife habitat. Two year-round creeks provide a steady supply of fresh water and, with the shape of the terrain, could support construction of a large pond or perhaps even a lake. The large creek bottom hardwoods feature plenty of mature, mast-bearing red and white oaks. The terrain is level to gently rolling with some steeper slopes near the creeks. The soil is predominantly sandy loam, intermixed with areas of south Alabama clay and a few rocky outcroppings. The creeks, hardwoods, and cover provide all the ingredients necessary to attract and hold whitetail deer, turkey and Bobwhite quail.
The tract has been owned by the same family since the 1960s. It is easily one of the best timber and recreational tracts in the entire area. Come take a look!
