This Act places restrictions on the cutting of indigenous or government timber and provides otherwise for the protection of such timber. "Government timber" means any trees and bushes planted under the direction of the Minister on government land or on Swazi nation land and "indigenous timber" means forest trees or their saplings growing on Government land or on Swazi nation land, not planted by human agency. No cutting or interference with land close to where such timber grows shall take place without a permission of the Minister or authorized officer. Certain exceptions on these rules are made in respect of private forests. The Act also defines the offence of setting fire to any indigenous or government timber or brushwood.
