Planned Burns

Approximate geographic extent of proposed planned burns in the Brisbane City Council area that have permits granted.

Planned burning on Brisbane City Council land is used to maintain the health of forests and lessen the impact of wild fires. Council aims to reduce the amount of fire fuel, such as dead wood, by 75% over the 60 to 80% of the land being burned. Some areas of the forest are left untouched, which can be used by wildlife as a refuge and help re-establish vegetation in the burnt sections.

Further information about planned burns is available on the Brisbane City Council website.
