This interesting property located along the banks of Golondrina Creek just north of Garrison near the Arlam community has had its native pine and hardwood forests professionally managed for years. The conservative strategy of thinning harvests and patiently letting the timber grow has resulted in an unusual size and grade of pine sawtimber, as well as some of the hardwoods. A good portion of the pine sawtimber offers an excellent opportunity for the timber investor. Much of this pine timber appears to meet a very high grade in terms of size and quality. The common diameters run in the 18-to 20-inch range, with quite a few observed in the 30-inch class. Merchantable heights on these native pines are running well in excess of three 16-foot logs on the average; much of this pine is 4-logs or taller.
