HVP have a vision of respecting our communities and having them value us. For this to occur we need to get better at telling our story of economic growth and community support. Our staff identify with the adage ‘We do the right thing when no-one is watching.’ This resonates with us, it is a true reflection of the role of the Australian forester. Our staff are passionate about what we do. We love forests, we live in forests, and we depend on a healthy and sustainable environment to work, earn and live.
On any given day HVP staff may be responsible for more than one hundred operations taking place across our estate. All necessary to ensure we are able to continue supplying our customers with the wood they need to make the products people use every day.
These updates are of operations we consider will have significant general community interest. We also provide notification directly to our neighbours immediately adjacent to harvesting coupes, aerial operations and where we have to undertake burning for residue or fuel reduction.
Please note this is not an exhaustive list of all current operations across the estate.
Should you have further queries or suggestions in relation to these operations please contact us via the contact tab at the top of this page.

HVP Plantations can confirm that the Rosedale West Boundary Track South Fire, which has been declared under control, has impacted roughly 2,200 hectares of pine plantation. Our focus now turns to salvaging the harvestable standing trees and preparing the burnt area for replanting the replacement crop of pine trees.
Plantation tree stock losses are estimated to incur a nett loss of several million dollars. Approximately 1,100 hectares of 12 to 23-year-old fire affected trees have been earmarked to be salvage harvested over the next 7 months.
