Private native forestry review
The PNF Review was commenced to develop a modern and simple regulatory framework for farm forestry in NSW. The PNF Review sought to balance the sustainable development of the farm forestry and agricultural industries while recognising the environmental values of the farm forest estate.
All members of the community were invited to provide feedback on how we could improve the management of NSW’s farm forest estate, with the public exhibition of both the PNF Review Terms of Reference and draft PNF Codes of Practice.
New PNF Codes of Practice were released on 2 May 2022.
The new PNF Codes of Practice have been updated to be clearer and easier to use, improve transparency and accountability within farm forestry and to support ecologically sustainable forest management for environmental, social and economic values.
The new PNF Codes of Practice were reviewed by the NSW Natural Resources Commission. You can find a link to the Commission's report here.
