Rush Creek Farm is a beautiful rolling property with several creeks, mature timber, and fantastic hunting. Property is in Putnam County, GA accessed from Oconee Springs Road. The property’s rich diversity lends itself not only to excellent hunting, but also a fantastic commercial timber investment. Characteristic of this property are the undisturbed natural hardwood areas loaded with Red Oak, White Oak and other hardwoods and the beautiful Rush Creek, a perennial stream and major tributary feeding into Lake Sinclair. Not only is the mature scenic forest perfect for an awesome deer or turkey hunt, but the Georgia Power Transmission line adds excellent long-range hunting where you are guaranteed to see lots of game.
The property has two age classes of pine plantation with fantastic growth. 33 acres of ~22-year-old Loblolly Pine are fully stocked and ready for either its first commercial thinning or final harvest. The other commercial plantation is ~27-year-old Loblolly Pine thinned in 2009. These plantations in conjunction with the mature hardwood provide a solid timber investment with significant merchantable value.
The property has 47 acres harvested in 2021, adding diversity with pockets of new growth that can be managed with either natural hardwood regeneration or can be reforested with loblolly pine. In addition to the clearcut area, ~ 45 acres of natural timber have been thinned, harvesting all pine to leave hardwood for wildlife habitat. Managed properly, this area will resemble the quintessential uneven aged upland oak forest.
