Nope, its not.  Must be one of those real estate types.  11 cords to the
acre?  Sounds like cut over brush land.  Pulp wood in the south (Texas)
is going for $29 cord for pine, and $12 a cord for hard wood. On
occaisions, you cannot sell the hardwood.

On second thought, not knowing where the 26,000 acres is located, sounds
suspiciously like a mining reclaimation project.
