Molpus Woodlands Group Announces Offering of 45,850 Acres of Timberland and Real Estate in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and North Carolina

July 24, 2017

JACKSON, MISS. –The Molpus Woodlands Group (Molpus), a timberland investment management organization headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, announced today, on behalf of a client, an offering for sale approximately 45,850 acres located in four states: approximately 15,300 acres in North Carolina, 4,850 acres in Georgia, 12,300 acres in Alabama, and 13,400 acres in Mississippi. This investment-grade timberland and real estate offering can be purchased in its entirety or in individual packages.

While these timberlands have been traditionally managed as commercial forests, their proximity to major metropolitan areas creates possible sources of revenue from real estate, development, recreation, and conservation partnerships. 

This offering has broad appeal as it allows a buyer to continue to manage the timberlands or to pursue attractive conservation and development opportunities,” said Bob Lyle, president of Molpus.

With access to U.S. interstates or major highways, these properties are located in competitive timber markets with a variety of manufacturing outlets for the delivery of raw materials. Certified under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), these managed forests consist primarily of pine plantations, ranging from well-stocked, merchantable timber to vibrant, young plantations to natural hardwoods along waterways. The diverse structure of this offering should accommodate immediate cash flow needs along with long-term investment performance. Opportunities for commercial and residential development, conservation easements and sales of recreational land also increase the value of this property. 

For more information about this offering, please contact Mark Power at 601-948-8733 ext. 339 or by e-mail at mpower@molpus.com
