Summer Harvest Moves to Lanes & Reads Plantations

HVP Plantations wish to advise that the annual Summer harvest program in the SW District has commenced and will continue at various locations until late Autumn next year.

Residents and the general public are advised that log trucks will be using local roads including: Range Road, Digby / Strathdownie Road, Lanes Road, Reads Road and Whites Lane to access the Lanes & Reads Plantations.

Clearfell crews are expected to move into the above areas late November.

The clearfell operations will see the harvest of all plantation trees in the forest coupe for subsequent transport and processing into sawlog for housing and other construction. Logs are transported for processing to Colac. Other recoverable product will be transported to Portland for export.

On ground signage is in place to highlight the specific areas of the operation in the plantation. 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 08 8724 6700.
