Firewood collection
Did you know that firewood collection is a threat to many native vegetation types, and contributes to the decline of some species of animals? This is because dead and fallen timber provides important habitat for native fauna and flora.
 
No firewood collection is allowed from:
 • Road reserves managed by Benalla Rural City Council on high conservation value roadsides, in Lima Stringybark areas or on roads covered by a Vegetation Protection Overlay as defined in the Benalla Planning Scheme.
 • Any roadside under VicRoads management.
 

Firewood collection is allowed without a permit from:
 Designated firewood collection areas in State forests and parks.
 For maps and further information on the firewood collection areas visit www.depi.vic.gov.au or telephone 136186.
 

A permit is required for:
 Collection of firewood from road reserves.
 Application forms and information for a “Permit for Works within a Road Reserve – Collection of Firewood” can be obtained from the Council website or the Customer Service Centre.
