What is private native forestry?

Private native forestry (PNF) is the sustainable logging of commercially viable native vegetation on private property.

The harvesting of your timber for the purposes of PNF may be possible provided your activities comply with the requirements of the Vegetation Management Act 1999 to notify and conduct activities in accord with the self-assessable vegetation clearing code which you can access below.
