Firewood collection season ends in Victoria

The autumn 2016 firewood collection season has closed.

Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning regional manager of forest and fire operations Richard Teychenne reminded people that from 1 July all designated firewood collection areas had been closed for the winter period.

“This means it won’t be legal for people to collect firewood on public land until the start of the spring firewood collection season,” Mr Teychenne said.

Designated firewood collection areas will re-open on 1 September.

DELWP and Parks Victoria staff will be patrolling parks, forests and reserves during winter to ensure people are doing the right thing.
