SW Fuel Reduction Burns

April 20, 2017

HVP Plantations is planning Fuel Reduction Burns of post-harvest residue in recently harvested forest sites on HVP’s estate at Rennick, Bahgallah, Weecurra, Milltown & Digby areas. These operations are planned for April to June 2017.  The timing of each burn is dependent on site and weather conditions that assist in achieving a safe and controlled burn.

The harvest residues are placed into heaps and a mineral earth break is constructed around the boundary to reduce the risk of escape.

HVP Plantations is a registered brigade with the CFA and maintains a fleet of firefighting resources and appropriately trained and skilled staff. All burns will be registered with VicFire and relevant authorities and neighbours will be notified prior to ignition of each area.
