What is recreational land and how is it used???

Use of the word recreational land may present some confusion for those unfamiliar with the land facet of the real estate industry. Recreational land is property that is used primarily for recreation, enjoyment, and/or pleasure as opposed to only being used as commercial timberland. Often times significant volumes of merchantable timber have been removed from recreational land allowing it to be utilized by individuals who do not wish to be in the timber business. This however does not make recreational land a poor investment choice. Many recreational tracts have large natural areas along steep slopes, drains, creeks and streams that are comprised of mature mixed timber that was left unharvested to make the property more pleasing aesthetically and to provide travel corridors and mast for wildlife. Areas that were previously not merchantable will grow into merchantable timber and areas that have been clear cut can be re-forested. Take note of the following uses of recreational land in Upstate South Carolina.

Recreational Land is Perfect for Hunting

Acreage in the upstate of South Carolina offers prime hunting opportunities for the recreational enthusiast. Hunting, one of the favorite pastimes in South Carolina, is a time for people to connect with nature and get away from the distractions that come with today’s fast paced world. There is nothing like being alone in the woods searching for that mature buck or gobbler.
