The property has three year-round creeks, Wolf Creek, Pilcher Creek and Daley Creek, and several seasonal creeks running throughout. All the creeks eventually drain into the Powder River System. There are also six ponds and numerous springs throughout the property.
The Wolf Creek Ranch has been managed for timber production and the site productivity of the property is average to above-average for eastern Oregon timber lands. The owners have practiced selective cutting over the years, so it provides good cover and food for many kinds of wildlife. The principal timber species is Ponderosa Pine, with lesser stands of Douglas Fir, White Fir, Tamarack and Lodge Pole Pine. An actual timber cruise has not been made recently.
The grazing is leased on a year-to-year basis. Historically, the ranch sustains 250 AUMs from June through October. The grass is wellbalanced with stubble heights monitored to adequate levels. The tenant is responsible for all fence repairs. The fence condition is good. In the early months of the grazing season, an abundance of seasonal streams supply ample water. In the later months, the ranch's sporadically scattered large ponds and springs become the main sources of water. The past years of strategic logging have created excellent range growth conditions, providing a nice blend of open growing areas along with ample shade for livestock. *
