Shenton Bushland - Grasstree burning

Consultation has concluded

The City is undertaking burning of dead grass tree skirts across a 1-hectare area of Shenton Bushland during late August 2017.

This project is being undertaken to reduce fine fuel loads within the hazard separation zone in the reserve. Fine fuel loads consist of grasses and small twigs which are less than 6mm in diameter

Ground burning will not occur and it will be limited to clumps of tall grass trees with a priority for those grasstrees under Jarrah and Banksia canopies.

How can I get involved, find out more or provide feedback?

  • Ask a question and we will respond
  • Provide us with some feedback by using the Feedback tool
  • Observe the signage displayed at the site.

All feedback and project updates, including site locations of where work is being undertaken will occur on in the News Feed on this engagement page.
