Patrols on lookout for illegal wood collection

THE spring 2017 firewood collection season will close in Victoria tomorrow.

Forest Fire Management Victoria forest management team leader Simon White said all designated firewood collection areas would be closed over the summer period from December 1.

“It will be illegal for people to collect firewood on public land until the start of the autumn firewood collection season,” Mr White said.

“Firewood collection may already have ceased in some parts of the state where supplies are exhausted or where rainfall or flooding has affected track conditions, making collection unsafe.

“The public will be able to start collecting firewood again from designated firewood collection areas
