Package Description

Bids due November 4, 2019

THE OFFERING American Forest Management, Inc. (AFM) has been retained to solicit sealed bids for approximately 7,222± gross acres of land and timber located in Hood River and Wasco Counties, Oregon, known as the Ketchum Lake Tree Farm.  This unique property will be offered for sale in its entirety as a lump sum, single-phase event. 

THE PROPERTY Ketchum Lake is located south of Hood River, Oregon, adjoining the northern sections of Mount Hood National Forest.  The property has excellent practical access for forest operations through a combination of public and private roads.  The internal road systems are graded and rocked for all-weather use with most of the rock sourced from the property. 

The property exhibits favorable operability with many opportunities for commercial thinning harvest activity.  The acreage is unencumbered by conservation easements or supply agreements.  Ketchum Lake is within short haul distance of various domestic customers as well as an export yard at Dallesport, Washington.

Approximately 89% of the property is classified as net available acres suitable for forest management.  Eighty-three percent of these acres include Douglas fir cover type distributed across all age classes.

The softwood plantation acreage totals 5,743± net acres, of which 4,892± is Douglas fir with an average plantation age of about 27 years.  Most of the plantation acreage is primed to grow into merchantability over the next 10 to 20 years.

Overall, the net available softwood cover types include 2,788± timbered acres of merchantable softwood 36 years old or older, containing approximately 28.7 MMBF of net merchantable volume across all species.

DATA ROOM AFM has set up an electronic data room containing information for bidders to use as they evaluate the property.  All prospective bidders who execute a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) will be granted access to the data room.  The data room will be accessible to prospective bidders starting September 23, 2019. 

OFFERING PROCESS Ketchum Lake is being presented for sale in its entirety, as a single stage, lump sum sealed bid event, with no further option to subdivide.  Prospective bidders are invited to participate in the process upon execution of the NDA.  Final bids will be due November 4, 2019.
