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

    This work will be undertaken by experienced fire management contractors. During this time internal pathways will be closed to ensure walker safety. The City will also be monitoring the burnt areas to assess weed growth and native flora regeneration.

    This project aims to reduce fine fuel loads within the hazard separation zone in the reserve. Shenton bushland has a high proportion of grass trees with many having long unburnt dead skirts which are a source of fine fuels. Fine fuel loads consist of grasses and small twigs which are less than 6mm in diameter.

    These fine fuels contribute to the intensity and spread of fire in the event of an unplanned fire and this work will assist the City to help protect property by reducing the build-up of flammable fuel loads.

    For further information, please contact Vicki Shannon, the City's Environmental Conservation Coordinator on (08) 9273 3500, or email vshannon@nedlands.wa.gov.au.
