34 Ac – Dale County – Marley Mill Road Tract
34 acres in Dale County, AlabamaListing Status: Sold
This is a great recreational tract with planted Longleaf pine, mature hardwoods, a creek and a nice pond located in west Dale County less than 10 minutes from Ozark, AL. Easily accessible but secluded, the tract has frontage on County Road 237 (Henry Pruitt Edgar Sr. Road) which is a dead-end, dirt and gravel road. There are only two landowners beyond this tract which means traffic will be minimal. Power is available at the road. It would make a nice hunting tract or perhaps a home site. Most of this tract is absolutely loaded with mature hardwoods along the creeks. There are some very large white and red oak trees throughout the creek bottoms which will ensure there are plenty of acorns for the deer, turkey, and other wildlife. The pond is almost an acre in size, is spring-fed and has plenty of fish! The pond is surrounded by large trees creating a very secluded setting for your fishing trips. Three separate creeks converge into one large creek on this tract providing plenty of water and great habitat for the wildlife. Internal trails allow ATV access throughout most of the tract. Marley Mill Road tract has approximately 15 acres of one-year old Longleaf pines. These trees were planted in 2016 through the NRCS Environmental Quality Incentives Program. The new owner will receive all the benefits and proceeds from the thinning and eventual harvest of the trees but must agree to allow them to continue to grow to maturity. These trees, which will remain in the “grass” stage for a few years, appear to have had a strong start and look very healthy. Longleaf pine, the predominant native pine tree in the southeast when the country was settled, is a hearty, drought-and-fire resistant species that flourishes in this area of the state. Properly managed, the Longleaf pine straw is in high demand and could potentially be used as an additional source of income in the future. If you would like more acreage, there is a 75-acre tract adjoining this property that is also for sale. Enjoy some great hunting and fishing in south Alabama while you manage your timber for future returns.
