Bid Event
11,718± Acres

LandVest, on behalf of Domain Capital Group, is pleased to bring to market Clarion Timberlands, 11,718± acres of premium hardwood timberland located in the Allegheny Plateau region of Pennsylvania. Clarion Timberlands is a compelling hardwood investment opportunity spread across six counties; this 16-tract portfolio offers access to one of the Mid-Atlantic’s most competitive hardwood timber markets. It is well suited for investors interested in a quality hardwood asset with a diverse age structure, species composition, and spatial layout.

The property is made up of a balanced mix of mature, maturing, and recently regenerated stands, allowing ongoing timber income through a continual harvest regime. It has a long history of professional timber management going back decades, from the vertically integrated forest products companies of the past, to more recent management from the timber investment community. The expert management of Clarion continues today and is certified to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standard, proof that the ownership has been managed to the highest environmental, social, and cultural standards.

With over 43,000 MBF (4.0 MBF per commercial forested acre), Clarion offers investors strong biological growth and ample harvest opportunities. The mix of Allegheny hardwood and oak-hickory forest types gives managers the ability to adapt their harvest priorities and management strategies to shifting hardwood market conditions.

In addition to the timber resource, the Clarion ownership also offers oil, gas, and mineral rights on a portion of the ownership. This potential is undeveloped; however, as mentioned, the region is productive in oil and gas development with most of the exploration in recent years focused on the Marcellus Shale formation.  

Clarion Timberlands is being offered in a wholesale, single-stage bid format. Qualified bidders will be given access to a secured Virtual Data Room (VDR) containing requisite property details and data necessary to prepare offers. The Non-Disclosure Agreement is available for download under the "Property Documents" section below.

Bids will be due at or before 1:00pm EDT, September 12, 2019.
