FOREST/TIMBER RESOURCES

This property has approximately 15 Acres of desirable timber which is composed of some high quality Appalachian Hardwoods. This well-maintained timber resource can provide a great deal of flexibility to the next ownership in the terms of potential Harvest revenue and can be managed to provide cash flow opportunities to offset holding cost and long-term asset appreciation.

WILDLIFE

What a spectacular place to hunt with deer and turkey in abundance with the Broad Run Creek that is running through the property.   The farm and fields, coupled with the abundance of Hickory, White Oak, and Red Oak create a habitat for the large and small game.  With years of progressive Wildlife Management practices, it has created an essential Wildlife Preserve.  Early on, management goals promoted overall wildlife health and have facilitated the harvest of game.  The abundance of the year-round water source created by mountain spring, the streams and their surrounding aquatic plant life, create a water-supported community with a wide variety of wildlife.  Some of the margin of the creek supporting the aquatic food web, provide shelter for wildlife, and stabilize the shores of the stream.  The plant life associated with the wetlands includes rushes, slugs, cat tails, duck weed and algae. There are many animals that live in the water and around the edge of the creek including raccoons, opossums, Blue Heron, turtles, salamanders, crayfish, muskrat, bullfrog, Eagles, Hawks and Red Wing Birds. The property has a mixture of hardwood species, and the adverse tree species coupled with the abundant water supply from the creek create a perfect wildlife habitat.  The Edge effect created between the creeks, hollows, ridge, rock out-cropping, and forest are a textbook habitat, benefiting all of the resident wildlife.  Whitetail deer, black bear, wild turkey, squirrels, rabbits, bobcats, raccoons, fox, and many species of song birds and raptors make up the resident wildlife population. The hardwood forest provides an essential nutrient source and produces tons of hardwood mask including acorns, hickory nuts, beechnut, and black walnut.  Soft mass includes sage horn, black cherry, tulip poplar seeds, maple seeds, autumn olive berries and blackberries.
