Just a few of the many pictures of my Tree Farm as it became Eagle Landing.

This property is located in rural Claiborne County on Norris Lake. For many years I used it as a Tree Farm. My father timbered it during the early 1950's and it was not timbered again until 1979. Here are correspondence regarding my first Forestry Management Project 1979 thru 1983. Also the Payne Family Trust timber sale that I administered during 1995 thru 1997.

Andy Griffith was my inspiration for putting my family farm into the Tree Farm management system in 1978. Mt. AIRY Andy Griffith Dead
