The Beard Tract (#03019-03679) is a +/- 196-acre tract of timberland located in northern Nevada County about eight miles north of Prescott, AR (North 33.912001°, West 93.343167°). Most of the topography is generally flat to gently rolling along with some hardwood creek bottoms. Access is available to the south side of the property via a dirt woodsroad running for about a mile north from county road #221. Over 130 acres were planted in 2007 and remain unthinned. About 30 acres were cleared and harvested in early 2021 and have not been replanted; only about 3-4 acres remain of merchantable natural pine. Over 30 acres remain as a hardwood creek bottom and wetland area. This tract features about a quarter-mile of frontage to the right-bank to an old river slough created by the Little Missouri River. According to the USDA NRCS web soil survey, the soils consist of an assortment of silt loams and sandy loams, which give the tract an excellent weighted average site index of 93.1 feet for Loblolly Pine (base age 50) for the portion rated.
