State native forestry

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.

Visiting state native forests

Timber reserves permit other commercial activities and recreational uses, such as:

  • camping
  • 4WD activities
  • scientific, research or educational purposes
  • accessing communications and water infrastructure.

Permits may be required for these activities.
