Property Description

A. J. Johns Properties I and II are located on Old Orangeburg Road near Garnett, SC. The property is primarily used for timber production and recreational use.  While providing significant conservation value on its own, the property is located in a neighborhood which presents excellent opportunity to build on landscape-scale conservation.  The property is surrounded by other large undeveloped tracts which link it to a conglomerate of other privately protected and publicly owned lands totaling over 50,000 contiguous acres.  The property contains significant forested wetlands which will be protected as preserves and over 3 miles of primarily forested road frontage which will be protected with a 300-foot setback buffer.  The property will be maintained as a working forest and utilized for agricultural production, recreational use and limited rural residential use, while permanently protecting the significant public benefits it provides.
