Private native forestry reporting requirements for landholders

The Private Native Forestry (PNF) Code of Practice requires landholders to report to the EPA if they have carried out PNF operations in the previous calendar year, or if they plan to undertake PNF operations in the coming year. Annual reports are due at the end of March in each calendar year, and may be submitted to the EPA by post or email

Landholders do not need to provide a report if they have not carried out any harvesting in the previous year and have no intention of harvesting their forest in the coming year.

A copy of the annual report template is available below:
