Community & Recreation

In order to operate successfully as part of the community, HVP Plantations recognise we have a responsibility to meet social expectations. Having good community relations creates a positive work environment and reduces the risk to our business. We know our customers and their customers appreciate resourcing their products from environmentally and socially acceptable sources.

So our staff work hard to balance the needs of our different stakeholders.

We also know that many community members have an affinity with our forests. We recognise the plantations are a resource for recreation, education and community events. There are a number of different ways people can access HVP land, learn more about Recreational Access below.

Remember – these are working plantations –  you are responsible for your own safety and enter at your own risk.

Visitor Induction

Remember – these are working plantations –  you are responsible for your own safety and enter at your own risk.

HVP Plantations want everyone who works and accesses our land to return home safely every night. Everyone who accesses our land needs to understand what they can do to keep themselves and others safe. HVP’s Visitor Induction Guidelines are designed to help keep all users of HVP land safe. It is a condition of entry to HVP land that Visitor’s agree to abide by these terms and conditions.

HVP’s plantations are a workplace, a timber resource and economic engine but they are also a community resource.

Community Projects

Community Projects

HVP staff work and live in the many communities we operate in. We are involved in varied community partnerships to improve the environmental and social values in these areas. Projects such as the maintenance of public picnic spaces, the preservation of cultural sites such as Bishops Green, involvement in education delivery with universities and local school tours, support of local events, sporting and community groups, management of school plantations and involvement in the Gippsland Arson Prevention Program, all encourage local involvement in and understanding of HVP operations and the broader forest industry.
