Proposed changes to timber harvesting
What's this about?
These rules, called the Integrated Forestry Operations Approvals (IFOA) set the rules for how forestry operations can be carried out on State forests and Crown timber lands in NSW.
IFOAs set out rules to protect native plants, animals, important habitat and ecosystems, soils and water in native forestry operations on public land. They also set requirements to achieve ecologically sustainable forest management in NSW.
The public is invited to have their say on the draft Coastal IFOA and on the new rules proposed for native forestry on public land in NSW. This feedback will inform the finalisation of the Coastal IFOA.
