Forestry Tasmania will soon begin its annual program of planned burns to regenerate forests after
harvest and to contribute to the statewide fre management efort through fuel reduction burns.
Around 150 regeneration burns ranging in size from a couple of hectares up to approximately 100
hectares are planned for this year in coupes across the Permanent Timber Production Zone. In
addition, Forestry Tasmania will be involved with fuel reduction burns across the state as part of
the coordinated fuel reduction burning program.
Regeneration burning is undertaken in Autumn – starting in March and extending to May in some
areas. Autumn is the best time to undertake this work because it is the safest time of year to burn;
the fuels are dry which creates less smoke than damp fuels; the extreme conditions of summer have
passed reducing the chance of the fre escaping boundaries; it is an ideal time for germination of
eucalypt seedlings given warm temperatures and the onset of regular rainfall.
Fuel reduction burning is undertaken in Autumn and Spring and, like regeneration burning,
is conducted when fuel and weather conditions are suitable.
Our aim is to minimise impact on neighbours and local communities. Every burn is carefully planned
for safety, smoke dispersal, protection of assets, infrastructure, special values, and threatened and
endangered species. These factors are documented in a burn plan that is reviewed, audited and
approved along with a risk assessment.
We burn only when weather conditions are suitable for managing and containing the fre to the
boundaries we have prepared and allow for favourable smoke dispersal as specifed in each plan.
On poor smoke dispersal days, burning is voluntarily cancelled until suitable conditions prevail.
Our burns are also coordinated with other agencies and forestry businesses to control smoke levels
within the Environment Protection Authority’s standards for each airshed area.
On-site preparation is undertaken where needed. For example, fre breaks may be established to
create a fuel free bufer on a dry boundary or near a special value or asset, and tracks are constructed
to provide access for any suppression activities that may be required.
