The Autumn Firewood Collection Season for 2018 starts across Victoria on 1 March and closes on 30 June
People collecting firewood must do so only from designated collection areas in State forests or parks where collection is allowed, and must stay within collection limits.
This includes taking a maximum of 2 cubic metres per person per day and a maximum of 16 cubic metres per household per financial year. The felling of any trees for firewood by members of the public is strictly prohibited.
The amount of domestic firewood available across Victoria is varied and some households rely on firewood for winter energy, so consider others when taking firewood.
DELWP and Parks Victoria staff will be patrolling parks, forests and reserves to make sure people are doing the right thing while collecting their firewood.
Some firewood collection areas may be part of the autumn planned burning program, so it’s important that you check where burns are happening as affected firewood collection areas may be closed at short notice.
