Buyers of timber plantation land being offered in the Green Triangle have the chance to convert the land back to grazing.
Some of the 10 lots for sale across 4868 hectares (12,030 acres) includes still standing blue gum timber under an existing lease which offers a handy income.
A similar offering of plantation land last year made about $3500 an acre or $8650 a hectare.
This is a small part of the well known Green Triangle region on the South Australian side of the border which saw massive investment in blue gums in the early 2000's.
The failed managed investment schemes used by Timbercorp and Great Southern to fund huge plantings in this area cast plantations in a bad light but now many investors are returning to growing timber because of their carbon storage potential.
Several of these lots for sale are leased by Australian Blue Gums which operates across 44,000ha in Victoria and more than 10,000ha in South Australia.
This company is a successful exporter of wood chips from Portland to customers in China and Japan.
In this 10 lot offering between Penola and Millicent from Nutrien Harcourts, are four lots with standing trees, where the owner can make a buck without lifting a finger.
The other lots are ready for redevelopment.
