Rolling Fork Timber Tract
Rolling Fork Timber Tract is a 3,209 acre property in Sevier County, Arkansas with mature hardwoods and well diversified age classes of planted pines.
This tract is an opportunity to invest in a large, professionally managed forest whose size and diversity of tree species and age classes may provide investors with early harvest and cash flow potential.
Consisting of 91% productive timberland, this property has approximately 1,183 acres of planted pine of various ages as well as 1,730 acres of mature hardwoods of multiple species. This diversity of species and age classes offers the opportunity for harvest activity in multiple years of the hold period, and thus anticipated cash flow for investors.
Rolling Fork Timber Tract has direct access to U.S. Highway 70 and boasts an interior road system in good condition. It has received significant capital improvements in the past year undertaken by the present owner, including construction of a new main road and two new bridges.
This property has historically been professionally managed by an established local forestry company with a large management footprint and institutional-grade data and inventory tracking. We expect to continue working with the current management company to maintain continuity and leverage local expertise.
Rolling Fork Timber Tract lies in a strong wood basket with extensive mill infrastructure. The second largest softwood mill in the southern U.S. is located in the nearby town of Dierks, about 30 miles from the property, with additional nearby mill options for timber delivery.
In addition, the Rolling Fork Little River flows through this property, supporting wildlife populations and enhancing recreational value.
A timber tract of this size brings several potential investment benefits. Firstly, it allows for frequency and optionality of harvest activity and the ability to respond to trends in both softwood and hardwood markets. Additionally, ongoing management activities associated with regular thinning helps maintain and build long term value as an investable timber property.
There is also flexibility and risk diversification with respect to exit strategy. A large tract like this one could ultimately be divided and sold in smaller parcels into the timber or recreational market. Alternatively, an aggregation strategy in which this tract is combined with another AcreTrader timber property in neighboring Howard County could prove marketable to institutional buyers.
5-10 year target hold period given stable cash flows and potential for long-term appreciation.
Invest in a hard asset with little or no correlation to other major asset classes.
