Bailey Place

Property Features

Available for the first time in 50 years, the Bailey Place is an intriguing timberland property set squarely in the fertile Black Belt of West Alabama. For an investor looking for a well-managed property with the ability to generate immediate cash flow and lay the groundwork to create an even more productive asset, Bailey Place has it all. In an era where conservative investments offer extremely low returns, Bailey Place presents a compelling story.

Within its 365-acre boundary, Bailey Place features 100% merchantable timber including planted pine, natural pine, and hardwoods. With a site index between 75 and 76 and a high water table that provides a generous amount of moisture to the loamy soils, the resulting quantity and quality of the timber is self-evident. In fact, 56% of the total timber volume is evenly divided between pine sawtimber and chip-n-saw (download PDF for summary timber information). Of particular note, while the natural pine / hardwood wetland areas experience seasonal flooding, no swamps exist on the property. As such, it is estimated that nearly all of these 114 acres could be converted to pine production. This represents a huge upside for an investor.

In addition to the economic value of the standing timber, Bailey Place offers up excellent hunting opportunities - particularly for deer and turkey. Deer often reach a 120-125 class and only 8-point and larger are taken. This hunting experience is made possible due to being surrounded by farm fields along with a location in the heart of the Tombigbee and Sipsey River watershed. Moreover, Bailey Place's mature hardwood areas offer cover for game and several strategically placed food plots supplement the natural food supply. Much of the property recently received a prescribed burn, providing benefits to both the timber and hunter alike.

Located just south of Aliceville in Pickens County, Bailey Place is less than one hour’s drive to Tuscaloosa.
