This type land is good for fruit, berries, garden crops of all kinds, pasture and meadows. About 60% of this land is wooded (the wooded portion primarily being the ridge running from East to West through the land) and consists of mostly hardwoods native to this area (hickory, oak, red cedar, ash, hackberry and others) plus both mature and young pine timber that can be harvested from time to time. The land is fenced around its perimeter except for a few feet along the SW corner which adjoins the old family home.
