Harvesting in Yarrowee (Mt Helen) Plantation

Harvesting in our Yarrowee Plantation will commence early August 2016. The Clearfell operation will be located on Boak, Indicator, and Jones Roads, it is expected to run until December 2016. Harvesting and delivery contractors have been instructed to do their best to minimise, as far as is practical, the impacts on local residents.

HVP has imposed a restriction on harvesting & haulage to only operate between the hours of 6.30am to 8pm weekdays. Residents are also advised that log trucks will be using  local roads, including Magpie, Aubreys, Boak, Indicator, Jones, Shire Ave, Frenchman’s Lane and Whitehorse Road.

Due care should be exercised on roads of the plantation, at road intersections and at points of truck access and egress from the plantation onto local roads. Please observe all safety signs.

 

For reasons of Safety – ALL PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE PLANTATION, INCLUDING HVP ROADS, IS PROHIBITED FOR THE FULL DURATION OF HARVESTING OPERATIONS.

During Jan / Feb 2017 site preparation of the harvested area will commence. Chopper rolling of pine slash will be followed by ripping and replanting with Pinus radiata in winter 2017.

 

If you have any queries on any aspect of the harvesting operation or would like to draw our attention to any relevant matters please contact, HVP Plantations Ballarat Office 5339 0000
