If you’re a landholder, you’re required to report annually if you have carried out private native forestry operations in the previous calendar year, or if you plan to undertake private native forestry operations in the coming year.
You need to use the reporting template to complete the annual report. Annual reports are due at the end of March each year, and may be submitted to Local Land Services by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or to the Environment Protection Authority at email@example.com or 131 555.
You don’t need to provide a report if you haven’t carried out any harvesting in the previous year and have no intention of harvesting your forest in the coming year.
Part 5B of the Local Land Services Act 2013 requires landholders to obtain an approved Private Native Forestry Plans before undertaking forestry operations. You can find a breakdown of PNF Plans below.
