Timberland for Sale
Timber has a long history in the South dating back to when Longleaf Pine covered all of the southern and gulf states in the most ecologically diverse and expansive forest ecosystem in North America. It is estimated that this forest covered 90 million acres at the time of settlement by the Europeans from Virginia to Texas.
Today, only 3% of that original forest remains. Most of that exists in the famed Red Hills region of North Florida and South Georgia and is maintained by a group of landowners and cooperating individuals and organizations who cherish it and the bobwhite quail that live there. While tremendous efforts have been made to re-establish the longleaf in the South, slash and loblolly pine make up the majority of forests today and serve as the main species in the commercial timber markets of the south. Today’s private forest landowner has placed emphasis on best management practices and integrating wildlife management into forestry practices. Through education provided by Tall Timbers, Forest Landowners Association, Quail Forever and the Longleaf Alliance the practices of prescribed burning and managing revenue-producing timber stands while integrating productive wildlife enhancement projects has been steadily increasing among private landowners.
