Native forestry

Private native forestry legislative framework

Private Native Forestry (PNF) in NSW is regulated under the Native Vegetation Act 2003 and Native Vegetation Regulation 2013. Under the Act PNF operations can only be undertaken with an approved private native forestry property vegetation plan and must be in accordance with the PNF Code of Practice

In 2013 the Environment Protection Authority and the Office of Environment and Heritage finalised the review of the Native Vegetation and the PNF Code of Practice. For more information about the review visit Review of the Private Native Forestry Code of Practice.
