Hello! Is this property fully/partially treed? Is it totally flat, or hills? Do you know what it was used for in the past? (ie: recreation, homestead, vacant, etc) And is this your property, or is this post for a friend/relative?
Have you had any soil tests performed? And is the well on the property, or is it just well access? Is this property capable of growing zone 8 anything, do you know from experience growing there, or just are guessing- since Lewis County is zone 8. Sorry for all the questions...

In reply to your questions:
Q: Is this property fully/partially treed?
A: It has some trees. It has some native cherry trees on the north line running east and west, as I mentioned in the ad, it has a wet/ wetland area that has some cottonwood, vining maple some fir trees and several maple. but of nothing of significance if you are thinking of harvesting timber for sale or use.
Q: Is it totally flat, or hills?
A: Yes it is totally Flat. so in part that is good, but the drawback is that it is in a 100 year flood zone mostly because
of it's close proximately to the Cowlitz River. as a matter of fact the second year after I purchased it, it flooded and the again
the year after that.
Q: Do you know what it was used for in the past? (ie: recreation, homestead, vacant, etc)

Q: Is this property capable of growing zone 8 anything, do you know from experience growing there, or just are guessing- since Lewis County is zone 8.
Zone 8 has a long growing season with hot summers. Most vegetable varieties will have no problem maturing before your first frost date. With a last frost date of April 1st and first frost date of December 1st. These dates will vary a week or two so it’s important to watch the weather before planting. Annual minimum temperature for zone 8 is 15ºF.
Also of note, most of the property is on the North side of Hwy 12 but 1 acre is located on the south side
