You will require this licence if you intend to pick and sell protected plants or cut-flowers. There are three types of Biodiversity Conservation Licence that may be issued depending on how you harvest your protected plants:
- Picker Licence: allows you to pick protected native plants from a property you don't own, including from a State Forest.
- Wild Harvester Licence: allows you to pick protected native plants from naturally occurring stands on property that you own.
- Grower Licence: allows you to grow protected and threatened native plants for sale from artificially cultivated stock.
No matter what type of biodiversity conservation licence you are applying for, you will need to read and be sure you can comply with all general conditions. There are also conditions specific to each licence type.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
