The Dean Tract is an investment-grade, mountainous Tennessee property of raw land on the Northern Cumberland Plateau bordering the state-owned TWRA’s North Cumberland WMA Royal Blue Unit for several miles. This property consists of hardwood timber, mineral reserves, exceptional viewsheds of the Cumberland Mountains, Roach Creek bottoms, and wildlife including elk, deer, and turkey.

With the rarity of being one of the very few large privately held tracts in Tennessee with frequency of an elk population, the Dean Tract is certainly unique. The income/return opportunities of its timber and mineral reserves are considerable. The strong natural landscape of Straight Fork Mtn, Gray Mtn, Roach Creek Mtn, and the “bowl” through which Roach Creek flows, represents the tract’s rugged and beautiful character. When the quality hunting and recreational components are additionally considered, it’s easy to see how the Dean Tract is such a distinctive and attractive investment-grade property.
