The Autumn firewood collection season will

commence across Victoria this Thursday.
The collection season allows people to collect
firewood from public land without a permit.
Grampians Region’s Assistant Chief Fire
Officer, Peter Kambouris said the collection
period will run between March 1 and June 30,
Firewood collection areas will be clearly
marked by official signs, and are located where
possible, to avoid sites of environmental and
cultural significance, and to make use of the
by-products of activities such as commercial
timber harvesting and road construction.
“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,” Mr Kambouris
“It’s important that people only collect
firewood from designated collection areas
in State forests or parks where collection is
allowed, and to stay within collection limits.
“This includes taking a maximum of two cubic
metres per person per day and a maximum of
16 cubic metres per household per financial
year. This is to prevent households stockpiling
large volumes of firewood from public land
and denying others a supply”.
Mr Kambouris said the felling of any trees for
firewood 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.
“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”.
Collecting firewood outside designated
firewood collection areas, and taking more
than the maximum allowable amount, can
result in an infringement notice of $634, or a
maximum penalty of one-year imprisonment
and a fine of up to $7,928.
Information and updates, including
interactive maps showing designated
collection areas, will be available on www.ffm. from Thursday, March 1.
