Blue Springs Plantation is a unique property located in Screven County, GA with nearly a mile of frontage on the Savannah River. Property gets it’s name from the blue springs immerging from the property and running into the Savannah River. Blue Springs has a long history of timber production, hunting., fishing and just an excellent recreational property. The abundance of wildlife on the property is phenomenal. Several wet weather ponds and beaver ponds supply water around the property year around and make excellent habitat for a significant amount of waterfowl The Savannah River is a natural flyway for many species of waterfowl which take refuge on this beautiful property.
The upland pines were harvested and reforested in 2015. Loblolly pines were planted and have excellent survival and even better growth. We are very bullish on this particular property for the timber investment potential. The excellent road system and upland stands promote year around logging conditions. With 971 acres of loblolly plantations, this is a very significant amount of timber volume. Marketed properly, the landowner should get as premium price as can be for wet weather logging and huge volume of wood. Most of the residual hardwood areas are great game corridors and habitat for wildlife and add character to the property.
Blue Springs has a modest lodge tucked away deep in the woods which does have power and water. This camp is utilized for entertaining and discussing the daily harvest of game. I am certain no lies are told around this campfire. The transmission line is planted in various crops and there are some 25 or game patches scattered throughout the property. There is enough area under the powerline to support a good dove field. May of the roads are considered wide linear patches. A short distance behind the lodge is a concrete landing that accesses the Savannah River. The river adds a hole new dimension of recreationally opportunity.
With the access to the river and the size of Blue Springs Plantation, this property has potential for commercial use. Blue Springs would also make for a great opportunity for a conservation Easement.
