Joining the dots in the Forestry industry’s woodchipping, burning, regeneration? program …
Between the 15th–19thApril 2010 the forest industry in Tasmania went on a burning spree.
According to Forestry Tasmania supplied figures, in just 5 days FT alone burnt 2369.56 hectares with 75 fires.The consequences were felt from North to South of Tasmania. The Sentinel ‘Hotspots’ captured, and overlaying currently lit/alight burns maps from FT’s ‘Planned Burns’ website, including freely available coupe maps, show that in most cases, these fires DO correlate to Forestry Industry fires. When Forestry Tasmania and/or their masters need a public relations fix and therefore want the fires to stop being lit … bang … they stop.
