Cove Mountain Forest resource is composed of high quality Appalachian hardwood.  This well-maintained timber resource can provide a great deal of flexibility to the next ownership in terms of potential harvest revenue and can be managed to provide cash flow opportunity to offset holding costs and long-term asset appreciation.  Capital timber value of the timber and pulpwood has not yet been determined.  The forest has predominantly well-drained upland terrain which has led to a resource dominated by hardwood species.  Overall, the species composition is highly desirable and favors Appalachian hardwood types, consisting primarily of black walnut, sugar maple, poplar, basswood, red oak groups, white oak, chestnut oak, soft maple, hickory, and a host of associated species.  Most stands are fully stocked, providing the next ownership with a great deal of flexibility in shaping their own silvicultural legacy.  Stem quality forest-wide can be considered excellent with the forest containing an abundance of current marketable timber.


Cove Mountain Forest’s mixture of mature forest, emerging forest, and farm fields, coupled with the abundance of water supply from the branches and springs, create the perfect wildlife habitat.  The edge effect created between the edges create long wildlife food plots.  The hardwood forest produces tons of acorns, hickory nuts, beechnut, and soft mask.  There are whitetail deer, black bear, red and gray fox, bobcats, wild turkey, squirrels, and raccoons.  The gas line that runs through the property creates a game plot for the deer to graze in and with the abundance of deer make a great hunting property.


There are dashed blueline streams on the property. Those streams should flow during rain events and periods of snow melt.
