Conservation values for scenic views

The property fronts Ga Hwy 316 which creates conservation values for scenic views and as a buffer. STPAL will hold the property and open it for nature-based use by the general public along designated trails and road systems. The property will be open for general public use during daylight hours for hiking and nature appreciation.

During the winter of 2017, we did a selective timber harvest upon the advice of the Georgia DNR. This property has been used for timber production for over 50 years. This creates an unnaturally dense forest without diversity. We will selectively harvest trees to improve the health of the forest and create more diverse habitat areas. This property is not open for hunting or camping. Following this harvest, we will begin considering options such as a trail system and open the property for public use.
