Planned burning is an important part of fire management. Its objective is to maintain biodiversity and to reduce the risk posed by bushfires to communities, biodiversity, infrastructure and services.

The Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) works with the Tasmania Fire Service (TFS) and Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT) to deliver the Statewide Fuel Reduction Burning program.  Further information on the Fuel Reduction Program can be found at the TFS website.

The locations of planned and completed burns are updated regularly.

Concerns relating to smoke should be lodged with the Environment Protection Authority (EPA)

The TFS has information on bushfires, planned burns and permit fires.
