Preparation of the sites will be undertaken in the days leading up to the date of the burns, and will consist of clearing around significant logs and habitat trees. Some limited test burning may be conducted during this time.

It is appreciated that these burns may cause some inconvenience, however all attempts will be made to limit any smoke hazards. The planned burns are necessary to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel, which will assist with hazard reduction. Planned burns assist to reduce the fire danger and provide conditions essential for native regeneration.
