November 18, 2022

HVP Plantations wish to advise of upcoming harvesting and haulage operations in Jagoes Gully at Wandiligong, which will continue the lifecycle of pine plantations in this area.

UPDATE: Following a short delay to commencement due to wet conditions, this operation has commenced 2/12/2022 and will continue through to March 2023.

Harvesting

  • This harvesting operation will commence late November 2022 and may continue into March 2023
  • The current crop of trees was planted in 1985 and is ready to be converted into sawn timber and other building and paper products.
  • The harvest worksite and a number of roads feeding into the worksite will be closed for the duration of the operation. For everyone’s safety, be aware of increased heavy vehicle traffic, machinery and road closures within the plantation.
  • Please visit our operations page for further information about the plantation lifecycle and the range of HVP operations.

Transport

Transport will commence a few days after harvesting commences. Our drivers will transport the plantation logs from the Wandiligong worksite to HVP’s customers in Myrtleford, Wangaratta and Benalla.

Timber will be transported out to Morses Creek Rd along Taylors Gully South Rd and Jagoes Gully Rd.

Safety

HVP takes safety seriously, please note the following:

  • The worksite shown on the map below will be closed to all public access for the duration of the operations. This includes vehicles, bikes and pedestrians.
  • The worksite remains closed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – including when the crew is not present.
  • Worksites are hazardous, and risks to people’s safety are not always obvious.
