Fire is an integral part of natural area processes in Australia; many Australian species do not germinate or set seed without fire to act as a trigger. However, natural areas within Perth are often surrounded by urban landscapes and fire can pose a risk to property and lives. The management of fire fuel loads and maintenance of firebreaks is a necessity for these areas, and is a service Natural Area can provide.
Fire fuel load assessment involves mapping and surveying areas to provide information on the type and level of fuels present and identifying the potential risks and management solutions. With our flora and vegetation expertise, we are able to fully assess sites for ecologically sustainable fuel load management.
Fire management planning can be undertaken following site assessments and determination of fire fuel loads. Fire management planning is prescriptive with defined actions to take in order to reduce fuel loads and manage loads into the future.
Manual removal of fuel load can involve large scale tree removal, canopy pruning, track pruning, brush cutting and removal of fallen debris and leaf litter.
Fire fuel load maintenance should be undertaken on an annual basis to ensure fuel loads are maintained at the desired level and to minimise the risk of fire.
