Native forestry

Private native forestry

Private native forestry (PNF) is the sustainable logging of native vegetation on private property. Harvesting timber for the purposes of PNF requires approval through a private native forestry property vegetation plan (PNF PVP) that ensures environmental outcomes are improved or maintained. A PNF PVP is a legally binding agreement between a landholder and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA).

Once a PNF PVP is entered into landholders must implement the minimum operating standards set out in the PNF Code of Practice.
