Jagoes Gully, Wandiligong: Summer 2019

October 1, 2019

HVP Plantations wish to advise of upcoming operations in parts of the Wandiligong Plantation. The harvest will be split into two segments. The first segment will be harvested for a 3 week period in October 2019. The second segment will be harvested from mid-December until late March 2020. As shown in green on the map below, the harvest will focus around the western end of Jagoes Gully.

Harvest & replanting
  • The first segment is a roadline harvest to allow us to build roads in the plantation.
  • The second segment is the main harvest.
  • Two age classes are present in this area; plantings from the mid 1980’s and early 1950’s.
  • The management of pine slash left after harvesting may include a combination of mechanical site preparation as well as burning. The site will be treated to control weeds prior to planting in Winter 2020.
Transport
  • Our drivers will transport the plantation logs from the worksites to HVP’s customers in Myrtleford, Wangaratta, Albury and Benalla, to be converted into sawn timber and other building and paper products.
  • The haulage routes (shown in red on the map below) include Jagoes Gully Rd, Centenary Ave, Smithy Lane, Moran Rd, Taylors Gully South Rd and Morses Creek Rd.
Safety

HVP takes safety seriously, please note the following:

  • Worksites are hazardous, and risks to people’s safety are not always obvious.
  • The worksites will be closed (to vehicles and pedestrians) for the duration of their operations. For everyone’s safety, obey all safety signs, and be aware of increased heavy vehicle traffic and machinery.
  • Please respect all signage, and do not be tempted go past signs for a closer look. This includes when the crew isn’t there (early morning and overnight).
Community recreation

HVP recognise that many community members have an affinity with our forests, and enjoy walking, running and bike-riding activities throughout the year. Before entering any plantations, please undertake a visitor induction and apply for a Human Powered Pass.
