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.

Woodend, Macedon & Mt Macedon Plantations Rolling Update
August 8, 2017
HVP Plantations would like to update the Macedon, Mt Macedon and Woodend communities about the continued forestry activities including timber harvesting, log haulage, planting and weed management program in the surrounding plantations. Some of the plantation areas, which were replanted following the Ash Wednesday fires of 1983, are now over 30 years old. HVP understand the plantations are valued by the local community. HVP intends to continue managing the Fingerpost and Railway areas as working plantations and as such will endeavour to replant with new pine seedlings, within twelve months of harvesting.
