Conducting private native forestry

The NSW Government has developed guidelines and videos to provide further information to operators and landholders conducting native forestry operations, and to support compliance with the PNF Code of Practice

Note: On 30 April 2018, Local Land Services assumed responsibility for PNF approval and extension services. The EPA retains its role in relation to monitoring of compliance with the PNF Code of Practice, and related enforcement activities. See more information on these changes or contact LLS for matters relating to PNF approvals.
