AFM Real Estate (AFMRE) is pleased to present the Evans Creek offering, located in Jackson County, Oregon, and totaling ±3,158 acres. The property consists of two contiguous blocks, Evans Creek Small (±478 acres) and Evans Creek Large (±2,680 acres), connected through a private, gated internal road system. Evans Creek is being offered in its entirety via a single-stage, closed bid sale. Offers will not be considered for individual blocks or parcels. Bids will be due by March 23, 2022.
Evans Creek is situated in the heart of southern Oregon. Though nestled between two of the area’s most prominent cities, Medford and Grants Pass, Evans Creek still provides the feeling and allure of privacy and seclusion. Notably, the southern Oregon landscape is home to some of the Pacific Northwest’s best blacktail deer, black bear and turkey hunting. The state of Oregon allows landowners to participate in its Landowner Preference Program, which allows for up to 4 tags per applicable species. With ±3,158 total acres, this property quickly becomes a mecca for private hunting and recreation. Just outside the property gates the Rogue River provides a plethora of outdoor activities and attractions. World renowned destinations are within just a two-hour drive and include the Oregon Coast, Crater Lake, and old growth Redwoods in southern Oregon and northern California.
Evans Creek is comprised of twelve individual tax lots, all of which are zoned ‘FR’ (Forest Resource). Portions of the property lie in close proximity to houses and utilities and Jackson County zoning regulations do allow for a variety of HBU possibilities. It is recommended that a buyer conduct their own due diligence and consult with a land use professional or the county regarding any potential uses of the land.
The entirety of the property is in a lower elevation area ranging from 1,400 – 3,000 feet. Timber on the property is a mix of premerchantable, submerchantable and merchantable Douglas-fir, whitewoods, pine, hardwood and cedar growing on well-managed sites. The plantation age class distribution, coupled with the volume in uneven-aged stands, positions the property for immediate returns and consistent long-term cash flow.
Of the more than 13.5 MMBF of net merchantable volume in uneven-aged stands and even-aged stands 35 and older, approximately 66% is Douglas-fir, with the majority of the remaining volume dominated by hardwood.
