Prescribed Burning in the Community Forest

Week of Oct 23rd 2023

Amidst our recent logging efforts, we prepared to burn debris piles in our designated areas, and the map below highlights where you may have caught (or will catch) a glimpse of the resulting smoke. After years of anticipation, the weather forecast was finally in our favour, with an excellent venting index and a very low Fire Danger rating, so we took action!

As we embark on this controlled burn, we're committed to adhering to the guidelines outlined in the Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation, as outlined in the attached factsheet. Additionally, we're taking every precaution, drawing from the insights provided in the Wildfire factsheet.

Our primary objective in lighting these fires is to proactively reduce the fire risk within the Sunshine Coast Community Forest.
