The Angelo/Burnham property is comprised of 2 tracts of variable size located in Alexander County, Illinois.  The tracts are distributed along the Mississippi river from Wycliffe, Kentucky to west of Thebes, Illinois.   The tracts are true islands with access by boat throughout the year.  There will be limited opportunities to construct roads across old river chutes to the properties, but a ferry will probably provide the best logging opportunities.   The major access routes are I-57 in Missouri, Highway 51 and 3 in Illinois, and Highway 51 in Kentucky.


Heartwood Forestland Fund VI purchased the property from Cypress Creek LLC. The predecessor to Cypress Creek LLC was Mead/WestVaco.  Mead/WestVaco acquired most of the property for the primary purpose of supplying fiber for the Mead/WestVaco paper mill in Wickliffe, Kentucky.

There are two primary forest types that make up the Angelo/Burnham purchase.  The two types are natural stands, primarily in buffer zones, (comprised of cottonwood, sycamore, silver maple, and willow) and cottonwood plantations, ranging in age from 8 to 11 years. The cottonwood stands are ready for a merchantable first thinning at age 8.
