    Please contact me at my cell #334-524-1999 to discuss getting an agent to look at property just outside Wadley on the Randolph/Chambers County line where I recently noticed a number of dead or dying trees, possibly infested with pine beetles. I live in Auburn, but can arrange to meet at the property most days.
