Native Vegetation Information
Native vegetation in South Australia (except parts of metropolitan Adelaide) is protected. You may need to apply to clear native vegetation. This is a separate process to the Development Act approval process.
See maps to find out where the protection under the Native Vegetation Act applies.
Contact your local Natural Resources Centre if you need general information.
