197,000 ha of fried forest
The largest area of forest since 1991 was burnt by DSE this last season.
DSE publicly celebrated a whopping 197,000 ha that they burnt last season out of their 225,000ha target for 2011-12.
Wet conditions thankfully slowed down the East Gippsland burns.
Next year DSE plans to torch a quarter of a million hectares across Victoria.
