Harvest and Haulage Operations at Yensches Road, Lankey’s Creek

November 22, 2016

HVP Plantations wish to advise local residences of the planned radiata pine plantation harvest at the end of Yensches Road, Lankey’s Creek. This harvest operation is excepted to commence December 2016, with the first phase expected to be completed in late Autumn 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 paper and medium density fibre board manufacturing. Logs are transported to Tumbarumba, Tumut and Albury for processing.

Residents and the general public are advised that log trucks will be using Yensches Road. If you would like to communicate with the log truck drivers they will be available on UHF channel 40 on the sealed roads and channel 25 on dirt roads.

HVP have implemented a self imposed a speed limit of 40km/h for all HVP log trucks along the sealed section of road adjacent to the residences on Yensches Road.

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.
