Autumn season ending June 30
The Autumn Firewood Collection Season will close across Victoria at the end of the month (June 30).
Firewood cannot be collected outside collection periods, to minimise risks to people, the environment and infrastructure during winter as well as periods of highest fire hazard.
Collection limits are also in place, to prevent households stockpiling large volumes of firewood from public land and denying others a supply.
According to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the collection limits include;
. Up to 2 cubic metres per person, per day.
1 cubic metre is about a 1.8 metre (6 foot) x 1.2 metre (4 foot) trailer of split firewood, neatly stacked to a height of half a metre (20 inches).
. You cannot collect more than 16 cubic metres per household per financial year (July to June).
