Molpus Woodlands Group Announces the Purchase of 26,739 Acres in Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina
Jackson, Mississippi – The Molpus Woodlands Group, LLC (Molpus), a timberland investment management organization headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, has, on behalf of a client, successfully purchased approximately 26,739 acres of timberland in the four southern states of Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
These historically well-managed timberlands, with broad geographic distribution across four southern states, have been under industrial timberland management for over 75 years, and provide exposure to multiple timber markets that represent the broad spectrum of pulp, paper, lumber, and panel producers located across the southern U.S. Most of the properties have frontage on public roads and provide habitat for a variety of wildlife species, including some of the major game species for the region.
“We look forward to adding additional properties under management in the southern U.S. where we already have a strong presence,” said Ken Sewell, Chief Operating Officer of The Molpus Woodlands Group, LLC. “These properties provide our client with good exposure to areas with long histories of successful commercial timber production, and they offer strong recreational opportunities to the region as well.”
