From tomorrow (29/02), locals can start stocking up with firewood for winter, with the season extending until June 30.

Fire Authorities say the firewood must be collected from designated areas on public land.

Collectors must stick to existing forest tracks, and stay within collection limits of two cubic metres per day, and 16 cubic metres per household per year.

The restrictions aim to protect sites of cultural and environmental significance, and the felling of trees for firewood is strictly prohibited.

From Friday, you can visit the Forest Fire Management Victoria website (https://www.ffm.vic.gov.au/firewood/firewood-collection-in-your-region) to view where to collect your firewood.
