About the Firewood Permit Application

This application allows the user to purchase a permit to collect firewood from a range of state forests within NSW. To create a permit you will be required to provide:

  • your personal contact details
  • vehicle registration number
  • driver's licence number
  • pensioner number (if applicable)
  • credit card details for payment


The cost of a permit will range between $0.00 and $0.00 per tonne depending on location and pensioner card.

When collecting firewood

  • Make sure you have a copy of your permit with you. Authorities will ask to see it and fines may be used if it is not processed.
  • Make sure you have a copy of the map that shows the area in which you are permitted to collect wood. You will need this to ensure you are complying with boundaries of your permit.
  • Be aware of environmental and safety issues - see Collecting Firewood
