Private Native Forestry plans

A private native forestry plan (PNF Plan) is a legally binding agreement between a landholder and Local Land Services (LLS).

It requires the landholder to conduct PNF operations in accordance with the relevant PNF Code of Practice. Compliance with the PNF Codes is regulated by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). 

Additionally, landholders must complete a forest management plan (FMP) describing the proposed forestry operations prior to undertaking private native forestry operations. Landholders are obliged to comply with both the PNF Plan and the relevant PNF Code, and an approved FMP.

For more information on PNF plans and FMPs, see the LLS website.
