Harvest and Haulage Operations at Moodys Hill Road, Maragle

November 22, 2016

HVP Plantations wish to advise local residences of the planned radiata pine plantation harvest along Moodys Hill Road. This harvest operation is excepted to commence in December 2016 and finish late Summer 2017.

The clearfell operation will see the harvest of all plantation trees in the forest coupe for subsequent transport and processing into sawlog products, for housing and other construction, and chiplog, for medium density fibre board and pulp and paper manufacturing. Logs are transported to Tumbarumba, Tumut and Albury for processing.

Residents and the general public are advised that log trucks will be using Moody’s Hill Road on to Elliot Way. If you would like to communicate with the log truck drivers they will be available on UHF channel 40 on main roads.

Felling and processing trees, and loading trucks are hazardous activities. Large machinery is involved and the ability of operators to hear and see beyond the immediate area of operations is often restricted. To keep everyone safe on ground signage is in place to highlight the specific areas of the operation in the plantation. If you see these signs DO NOT continue past the signs, you must seek an alternate route.

All of our operations are subject to fire and weather constraints and customer demand and may be altered without notice. However effort will be made to keep you informed.

In an effort to help us to improve our communication and operations, HVP encourage you to contact us through our website with any feedback.

For further specific information regarding these operations please contact HVP Plantations on 03 5731 2000.
