Collecting Firewood From Roadsides
The collection of roadside timber is only available on lower conservation roadsides throughout the Rural City of Wangaratta. This is to ensure the protection of our fragile woodlands. Roadside vegetation provides important habitat to animals such as parrots, kookaburras, owls, possums, gliders, bats, and geckos. All of these local residents are on our high conservation road reserves and require hollows and fallen timber for shelter and homes.
Roadside Firewood Permits are required to collect wood from roadsides. These are available from the Wangaratta Government Centre, where staff will determine if roadsides are suitable for collection.
