This CLC Lands & Private Lakes, Inc.’s 28 Timber Acreage property is a 68-acre parcel located south of M28 between Seney and McMillan. The northern portion of this real estate includes elevated land populated with maple, hemlock, and yellow birch. The southern part of the property is largely wet and contains swamp conifer such as black spruce, white cedar, and tamarack, with some scattered white pine.
There is an access road at the northeastern end of the property. The State of Michigan owns a 200-foot right-of-way off M-28.
Head east on State Highway M28, 7.5 miles past Seney, to the property on the right-hand side of the road. If you are heading west on M28, it is located 5 miles west of McMillan on the left.
This property is located at the end of the “Seney Stretch,” a 25-mile unvaryingly-straight length of highway between Shingleton and Seney. The road transects acres of wetland belonging to the Seney National Wildlife Refuge (https://www.fws.gov/refuge/seney/). When traveling east, the end of the “Stretch” is apparent when the road rises up the side of a remnant of the proglacial lake bed of Lake Algonquin – the precursor of several of the Great Lakes.
Today, the waterway at the base of this rise is the East Branch of the Fox River. This is the river that was the model for Ernest Hemingway’s famous story the “Big Two-Hearted River” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Two-Hearted_River).
At the top of the climb, it is a short distance to the property located on the right side of the highway. There is a forest road between the guard rails that accesses the northeastern corner.
In June, the road is carpeted in forget-me-nots, or scorpion grass. Some folks call it periwinkle, descriptive of its light purple-blue color (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myosotis). It leads to the elevated portion of the property. Here, the entry road is lined with maple, hemlock, and yellow birch.
Much of the southern part of this 120-acre parcel is wet and contains swamp conifer, such as black spruce, white cedar, and tamarack with some scattered white pine.
This is a timber-investment property. Timber-producers with a Class A access would be most interested in this parcel.
