Supporting forestry burns

Fire research personnel assisted Wenita Forestry staff who were conducting land clearing burns as part of a multi-year forest establishment project by Ngai Tahu Forestry in North Otago. The research team provided advice on burn prescription and forecast weather windows, as well as modelling smoke dispersion. Having encountered some smoke issues during the previous year’s burns, the smoke model runs gave the forest managers and Fire and Emergency NZ personnel greater confidence to carry out this year’s burning.
