In 1996 to 2000, this property was planted to 263.86 hectares (651.99 acres) of commercial Pinus radiata plantation. Today this mature plantation property is being harvested and the property is now ready for sale for either replanting or for reversion to productive grazing land or other uses including lifestyle pursuits. The favourable topography delivers a good mix of native vegetation reserves, creeks and gentle sloping ridges that deliver large areas previously utilised for plantation production.
One can easily see the opportunity for the right sophisticated investor here, certainly, “they aren’t making anymore land”, so, as with all freehold plantation properties, once harvested, this is the time to acquire this sensational property before, it once again becomes a plantation effectively locking up this land for another 25 to 30 years. A lack of past cattle use, herbicide or chemical use over the previous rotation suggests Organic certification may be possible for the buyer.
Supported by an excellent roading network both internally and throughout the region, this property presents a sensational opportunity to the right opportunistic investor. The property receives good reliable annual rainfall of approx. 850mm to 900mm, the region renowned for its favourable site parameters which includes good nutrient soils. Germans Creek runs through the property leading to the flowing water of Coppabella Creek that borders the western boundary of the property.
The property is being sold in one parcel with an existing Forestry Management Agreement in place providing the current vendor rights to complete the current harvest program.
