The Cherry Tree Wind Farm is in early stages of development, with a forecast installed capacity of 16 turbines (50 MW).

It is in the Trawool/Whiteheads Creek area, just south east of Seymour, about 85 km north of Melbourne.

A number of information sessions were held by the proponent (Infigen Energy) in December 2011. An anti-wind meeting was held in August 2012.

The Cherry Tree proposal is currently on public display. While the formal period for submissions is now over, Michell Council have indicated that they will consider submissions up until the time it takes a decision on the proposal.
