The majority of these sales were taken directly from the tax assessors office in Williamsburg Co.. 1) 12/2/2010 259 +- acres $595,000 45-233-002 This was a property that I sold. The appraisal stated that the timber value was $943/acre. If you divide the two numbers, the value is $2,297/acre. If you subtract the timber value from this number, $2,297 - $943, this (0 comments)

Wetlands Restoration Program - 08/14/11 04:48 PM
The Wetlands Restoration Program is an excellent conservation to raparian zones. Currently in SC there are four Wetlands Restoration Programs in place. Conservation is the main issue surrounding these programs. The first program in South Carolina was established in 2002, known as the Kiawah Island Restoration Program, partially funded by NOAA. $15,150 was provided to establish salt marsh vegetation, shoreline buffers, and oyster reefs in that area. These types of programs have become popular with current landowners whose goal is to re-establish natural wetlands on their properties. An example of restoring properties back to their natural state is removing ditches. A (0 comments)
South Carolina Hunting Habitats - 08/12/11 08:22 PM
Deer, turkey, and hogs are in abundant numbers in South Carolina, and we have one of the longest deer seasons in the country. The coastal counties open deer season on August 15 and it runs through January 1st. Here is a quick rundown of the different geographic regions of the state: - The lowcountry is a coastal plain that runs from Pawley's Island (just below Myrtle Beach) down to the Georgia border and inland about 50-60 miles. Habitats range from vast timber tracts, hardwood bottoms, some agriculture and marsh. Some of the highest deer populations in the state can be found in (0 comments)
In my opinion, current purchases of Farmland and Timber will ALL be long term assets in the coming years. Now is the time to buy LAND because commodities are at an all time high and prices have decreased in some properties to over 50% in recent years, especially in 2011. PineTimber prices seem to be stable at this time. I predict those prices will remain stable or increase in the future. I would suggest taking your money and place it into this tangible asset - LAND. I specialize in the state of SC. Hence SCLANDMAN.....I currently have a large portfolio (1 comments)
