Trees, grass, forbs: This area of Upshur County boasts sandy loam soils which are productive for both hay production and prolific timber stands. This property features approximately 245+/- acres of improved and native pastures. The grasses are predominately common and coastal Bermuda as well as some Bahia and native grasses as well. The vast majority of the property's landscape drains well making access convenient from both entrances. Groves of large mature white oaks, pin oaks, and red oak trees can be found on scattered throughout the ranch. Other tree cover consists of pecan, black gum, sweet gum, river birch, hickory, elm, willow, and some pine. Found within the stands of mature timber scattered across the farm are native forbs and browse that are highly attractive to deer and other wildlife.
Water: The property has a year-round creek (Little White Oak Creek) flowing from the north and into the ranch along its western boundary.
