More about Paint River Area 395 Acres Timberland
This 394.59 acre tract of timberland adjoins the million acre Ottawa National Forest on one side and Copper County State Forest on the other. This is an area valued by those who know it best for camping, fishing, and hunting. There is quality trout fishing near on the Blue Ribbon trout streams of the western Upper Peninsula, including the Paint, Cooks Run, and the Iron.
This forest land is about 80% upland with level to gently rolling terrain dominated by northern hardwoods and lesser amounts of aspen and spruce. Northern hardwoods occupy a total of 160 acres across the property and are moderately to well stocked. Sugar maple is the dominant species. The upland soils are dominated by moderately well drained Argonne fine sandy loams.
A buyer will find this remote and secluded but easily accessible location highly attractive for personal enjoyment in the out of doors. A benefit may be timber harvests designed to enhance the recreational aspects of the property and maintain a healthy and vigorous forest. Timber harvests can help offset the expenses of owning recreational property.
Several stands of aspen and fir have been harvested in recent years in an effort to salvage spruce trees infested with spruce bud worm, while at the same time providing improved cover for grouse and deer. Most of the aspen on the property is in the sapling stage.
The property consists of a parcel of 354.59 acres plus a half interest in a nearby 40 acres. Access is provided by a combination of woods roads across federal land and legal easements.
This property adjoins “Paint River Camp”, a large hunting and fishing lodge with 700 acres of land also described on this website.
