1,369.00-acre tract of timberland that is currently managed and used primarily for timber production and recreation located in the mountainous Valley and Ridge region of Southeast Tennessee. The tract has approximately 300 feet of frontage on Annadel Road, which is a paved county maintained road. This road is in good condition and has recently been resurfaced. The tract is also accessed by a gravel drive leading from the intersection of Andy Cooper Road and the Norfolk Southern Railway. These two access points have provided historical access into the property and have recently been used for timber removal. The property also has a small amount of frontage on Adams Ridge Road, but has no vehicular access at this point.
Internal access roads provide easy access to most portions of the property. These access
roads have been improved by recent logging operations. Upon completion of logging, the roads
have been graded and water bars have been installed to prevent erosion damage.
The elevation of the tract is highest near the central region of the tract at 1,240 feet above sea
level and along the southeastern boundary where a peak rises to 1,580 feet. The elevation of
the tract offers views of the surrounding countryside and mountain ranges. This view is a
positive amenity to the tract and offers the potential for future development into mountain-view
home sites. The adjoining property to the west, which was once part of the same ownership is currently timbered, as is the majority of surrounding property. Pasture and rural residential home sites make up the balance of surrounding land uses.
Rock Creek forms the majority of the property’s western boundary. This is a perennial stream
vegetated by typical Appalachian streamside species such as mountain laurel and eastern
A hunting camp has been established on a hilltop on the south central portion of the property.
This campsite was very clean and well maintained with no permanent structures. Wildlife food
plots have been established in various locations of the property.
The property is timbered with 72 acres of 3-year-old premerchantable, planted loblolly pine.
The majority of the property not in planted pine or creek drains is cutover and cut-through
timberland. Most harvested areas have very little timber cover remaining, while in other areas,
some lower valued pulpwood trees remain.
Eight gas wells were established on the property in the 1970s that have been abandoned. Little
information exists on these wells.
