State native forestry
Coronavirus (COVID-19): Forestry services
We are still open for business; however, all of our offices are closed to the public until further notice. There may be some delays, but we aim to minimise disruption while we continue to deliver essential services.
Our field staff continue to work and are taking appropriate precautions. Staff entering remote communities to provide essential services are well informed to follow appropriate health and entry guidelines.
We manage native forest timber production in state forests, timber reserves and other state-controlled lands, including the sale of log timber and other forest products and the sale of quarry materials, under the Forestry Act 1959.
We are committed to effective and responsible management of our native forest resources.
Defined forest areas are mapped out to show which timber reserve areas are available for timber production. We also administer permits for apiary sites and stock grazing in some areas of state forest.
