acreage...and I mean...eventually would like to be cleared mostly of the timber...one I am looking at has timber on it now. Know of any good deals?
No, sorry if it sounded like I was a seller or dealer. Cleared land is high maintenance. Will take considerable time or money to keep it from growing up in brush. At first, it may seem like a great pastime to take care of it, but if you get distracted from it, it can get away from you in a hurry, and cost a lot to clean up the mess.
Some cleared land is a necessity, but don't clear more than you need or can maintain. Once timber grows up a few years, woods are better for recreation anyway.
If you buy some timberland that has been harvested, you need to make sure that the regeneration of good species is taking place. It'll look like a thicket either way, but if you let junk species take over and grow up, you're really looking at serious expense to convert back to productive land.
