The Rural City of Wangaratta has established two community firewood depots located at Eldorado and Glenrowan.
The depots assist the community to maintain access to a sustainable firewood supply, and reduce the need to remove timber from roadsides. Fallen timber (especially hollows) are important habitats and shelters for small animals; over time they break down and place valuable nutrients back in to the soil.
Depots are open outside of the fire danger period, usually from April to October. Supply is not guaranteed so you will need to visit the depots to check if wood is available before purchasing a permit. Timber is for private use only - it is an offence to on-sell.
