Private native forestry property vegetation plans
A private native forestry property vegetation plan (PNF PVP) is a legally binding agreement between a landholder and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
You must contact the EPA to start the PNF PVP process. An EPA Officer will then discuss the process of preparing a PNF PVP with you. For an overview of the process of obtaining a PNF PVP, download the following fact sheet:
Forest operation planning
Landholders must complete a forest operation plan (FOP) describing the proposed forestry operations before undertaking private native forestry operations.
A FOP describes the proposed forestry operation, includes a FOP map and is completed using a template. FOP templates and guidelines to help landholders complete a FOP are available for download in the table below.
The FOP map, template and guidelines will be provided with a PNF PVP approved by the EPA. A signed hard copy of the FOP template must be available on-site during forestry operations.
