MAY 2013, SALISBURY, MD – Ben Alder, an Advisor with Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate recently listed more than 5,400 acres of timberland valued at nearly $11M in partnership with LandVest. LandVest is a real estate company specializing in Luxury Real Estate and Timberland Services. David King, the Project Manager of the Timberland Division for LandVest is working with Ben Alder to direct the full portfolio of properties being sold. Gary Bahlkow, ACF, the Director of Northern Timberland Transactions for LandVest states, “LandVest operates nationwide in the timberland investment asset class and we rarely find the depth of talent Ben Alder and SVN-Miller bring to this important project.”

There are 23 separate tracts ranging in size from 60 to 852 acres with prices from $112,000 to $1,430,000. These properties were formerly owned by Chesapeake Forest and are located throughout Maryland. The properties were all a part of the strategic conservation project which protected more than 30,000 acres of wildlife habitat throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. These properties are being marketed to timber and recreational buyers and they offer an array of locations and resource values in Maryland.

Ben Alder states, “This is an excellent opportunity for land buyers to purchase well managed timberland of many acreage sizes and price points. I have walked many of these properties and they each offer unique hunting and recreational opportunities. The timber resource value can provide good long term returns on your investment.” For more information on these timberland properties contact Ben Alder at or 410-543-2440.
