As custodians of the natural environment, we utilise burning as a management tool to maintain and enhance habitats ensuring the ecological condition of these valuable ecosystems remains healthy into the future.

We manage large tracts of highland Poa grassland located at Surrey Hills in North West Tasmania, a threatened vegetation type. These grasslands are protected through covenants and other agreements with the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE).

We are responsible for maintaining the health and vitality of these grasslands. Management strategies implemented include low intensity ecological burning of the grasslands predominantly in Spring to reduce the potential of natural succession (transitioning the areas from grassland into scrub and mature natural forest). Through a structured burning program over prescribed timelines, other plants and animal species will benefit and flourish from the intervention.
