147,344± Acres

Western Pocahontas Timberlands comprises a 147,344±-acre Term Timber Agreement (“TTA”) in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Maryland, offering a large-scale hardwood timber investment opportunity with returns driven by cash flows derived from timber management activities. Established March 31, 2006, the 25-year TTA with Western Pocahontas Properties, LP has an additional 12 years remaining. The risks and costs of fee ownership have been removed. Western Pocahontas is a true “pure-play” timber investment based on harvest yields.

Ample timber supply is available for ongoing harvesting throughout the term of the TTA. A current timber inventory estimates 483 million board feet of sawtimber with an average of 4.0 MBF per forested acre with an additional 37 tons of pulpwood and growing stock per forested acre. Western Pocahontas offers a broad species distribution of hardwood with mixed oak-hickory forest types in the south and Allegany hardwoods in the north. The region offers a full spectrum of forest products markets.

The Western Pocahontas TTA will be offered in its entirety via a single-stage bid event with bids due Wednesday, November 6, 2019.
