Section 35-4-92

Transfers of standing timber, trees, and cutting rights.

Except as may be otherwise provided by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, all conveyances, mortgages, and other instruments executed hereafter for the purpose of transferring standing timber or trees, or cutting rights with respect thereto, or an interest therein, whether such timber, trees, or rights shall be real or personal property, shall be recorded in the county in which such timber and trees are located in the same manner and books and under the same conditions that conveyances of real property are recorded in such county and with like effect; and no such instrument need be recorded elsewhere. Unless an instrument effecting such transfer and herein required to be recorded is so recorded, any such transfer shall be inoperative and void as against purchasers, mortgagees, and judgment creditors without notice.
