560 acres in Shelby County, Alabama
Listing Status: New
This 560+/- acre tract near Calera in Shelby County, AL is a prime recreational tract and timber investment. It offers incredible diversity and features which includes quality pine plantation, excellent hunting opportunities, a superb existing road system, and convenience to virtually anywhere in Birmingham.
The property is accessed via Sawyer’s Cove Road and offers an extensive, well-maintained road system. There are outstanding numbers of deer and turkeys on it, too! The property features a rolling topography, and there are multiple prime build sites available for a home, cabin, or lodge. There are also approximately 8 food plots on the property that are ready to be planted for spring/ summer food plots.
The timber is comprised of pine plantation of various ages. A generalized breakdown of the pine plantation are as follows:
-80+/- acres of thinned planation that are over 20 years old
-125+/- acres of merchantable pine ranging from 30 to 35 years old
-350+/- acres of younger planation of premerchantable pine timber (up to 10 years old)
The diversity in type, age, and stage of the timber is highly preferable from a wildlife and timber investment perspective. It offers the opportunity for a steady, staggered return on investment and provides a wide range of habitat diversity that is critical for sustaining healthy populations of deer, turkey, dove, and other wildlife.
The native browse and food sources found on a thinned or younger plantation is a crucial component to a healthy, stable habitat for all game animals. The bedding and nesting cover that is a feature of a young planation is another important aspect to consider when managing for wildlife.
The fact that this property offers all of this in a large, contiguous parcel that couldn’t be more convenient to anywhere in or around Birmingham makes this a truly special opportunity.
