Foliar Sampling Operation (Shooting) – North East Region 2023

June 19, 2023

HVP Plantations wish to advise of upcoming foliar sampling operation in the plantations in the North East region of Victoria.  HVP is undertaking an operation to collect foliar samples from trees 10-18 years of age, as a part of a program to assess their nutritional status. Samples are collected by shooting growing tips from the crowns of trees using a shotgun. We use professional licenced shooters to undertake this operation, and there will be no samples taken within 200m of any residences.

Areas where samples are being collected include plantations located at – : Ovens, Basin Creek, Merriang, Emu, Stanley, Bright, Porepunkah, Morgans Creek, Havilah, Toombullups, Warrenbayne, Shelley, Crystal Creek, Kinglake, Buxton, Narbethong, Newtons (Eildon)

The operation is scheduled to commence in June, and will take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete.

HVP will install on ground signage to highlight the specific area being worked in. Local Police will be notified before operations commence.
