For Sale: 80 acres of varied forest land in Mackinac County Michigan. (T42N R01W Section 09 N1/2 SW 1/4) This property is located north of Hessel, MI near Bay City Lake. The property has been in its current ownership since 2001 but in the family for 50 years. In 1999, a Forest Stewardship plan was written for this property by Grossman Forestry Company. It included a timber harvest recommendation to thin the hardwoods and a regeneration harvest in the aspen.

The current timber distribution is as follows: Northern Hardwood - 31.0 acres or 39%; Aspen - 20.6 acres or 26%; Cedar - 23.0 acres or 29%; Red Pine - 0.4 acres or 6%; and Lowland Brush - 5 acres or 6%. Diseased beech was harvested in 2008. The aspen are ready to be harvested again in 2020.

The varied acreage is ideal for both bird and deer hunting.

The small red pine grove was planted in the mid 60's and is presently three stores in height, 14 inches diameter, making excellent wood for either flag poles or teepees.

In 2008 the owners applied for and were granted Qualified Forest Status. Therefore, the land does not become "uncapped" when sold and low taxes are maintained.

"Walking" the property can be conveniently arranged.

Price: $99,500.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
