Total stock of merchant-table timber volume is
estimated at approximately 435,000 m3 consisting mostly of valuable species and affording near-term opportunities. Additional income is available from a gravel pit, road use fees, various leases and licenses.
Several properties featuring water front and/or expansive lake views (Cottonwood Lake, Pend d’Oreille Lake) offer recreational and residential development potential.
The terrain allows for a mix of ground and cable-based harvesting systems. Elevation ranges from 600 to 1,800 m (1,800 – 5,400 ft) and Mean Annual Increment (MAI) averages about 6 m3/ha*year.
The properties have well-developed internal and secure external road access, directly connecting to the public road system and are gated.
