Forest flambé plans thwarted

Despite plans to burn 130,000ha of bush last season DSE only managed a massive 49,000ha. The year before 127,000ha was scorched and before that 95,000ha of healthy undergrowth ecology was turned to ash. Gippsland had a planned 54,000ha to be flambéd but only managed to dry out and modify 10,000ha.
