QLDC Harvesting Operation in Ben Lomond
The Ben Lomond Forest Reserve provides a wide range of recreational
opportunities and supports a large range of users. The forest contains
some of the fastest growing Douglas fr in New Zealand. It has been

to generate revenue for the management of the district's parks and
reserves and wilding conifer control.
A harvest operation is to be undertaken in the Ben Lomond Forest from
15th October 2012 to 28th February 2013. The Skyline Road off Lomond
Crescent will be closed to the public during the hours of operation. The
hours of operation will be 8am till 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
4 Ha of trees will be removed, this area is adjoining the area that was
harvested last year. The area will be replanted in non-wilding exotics
(redwoods), the following winter.
If you have any questions or would like any further information, please
contact Briana Pringle, District Forester on 03 450 1705.
