Private native forestry review

The NSW Government’s vision is that NSW will have a sustainably managed forest estate that continues to support regional economies and delivers social and environmental benefits.

The Private Native Forestry Review seeks to balance the sustainable development of the private native timber and agricultural industries while recognising the environmental values of the private native forest estate.

We are leading the Private Native Forestry Review in collaboration with the NSW Environment Protection Authority and NSW Department of Primary Industries.

PNF Review - Timeline

Submissions have closed on the draft Private Native Forestry Codes of Practice

The NSW Government released draft PNF Codes of Practice for 8-weeks of public exhibition on 24 March 2020, ending 19 May 2020.

We sought feedback on four draft PNF Codes of Practice, including:

  • Northern NSW
  • Southern NSW
  • River Red Gum Forest
  • Cypress & Western Hardwood Forests.

Submissions on the draft PNF Codes of Practice have now closed.

The next steps in the PNF Review are the review of submissions on the draft PNF Codes of Practice and the development of new streamlined PNF Codes of Practice that are clear, easier to use and support long-term ecologically sustainable forest management.
