New rules for Private Native Forestry

Landowners, the forestry industry and the community can have their say on how private native forestry can be improved in NSW.

The review, part of the NSW Forestry Industry Roadmap, will support development of new codes of practice, and the rules, regulations and approvals process of private native forestry. It will also guide development of training and advice services.

Local Land Services will lead the review in collaboration with the Environment Protection Authority and Department of Primary Industries.

The Private Native Forestry Review Terms of Reference were released today. Submissions close 31 January 2019.

"Sustainably-managed native forests on privately-owned land are an important part of NSW’s forest estate", Minister for Lands and Forestry, Paul Toole said.
