What to expect during harvest

  • The harvest of stage one will start in late autumn/winter 2023. It will last approximately three months.
  • Foresters will be working in the area between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday.
  • The park will remain open while the harvest takes place. The central area being harvested will be restricted to workers-only for the duration of the harvest.
  • Detours will be in place for Te Araroa Walkway, which runs through the stage one area.
  • All internal roads bordering stage one will be closed. Access will be blocked with signs and barriers to ensure park users' safety.
  • Lilybank Road will remain open, but traffic management will be in place while trees along the road edge are being felled.
  • Temporary signs will be placed throughout the park to mark detours.
  • There will be more noise than usual in the park . However, we expect minimal noise to travel beyond the park, as stage one is buffered by forest on all sides.
