This fire note is one of eight that aims to summarise the findings of Hub research in a way that is useful to fire managers.
Bushfires, hazard reduction burns (HRBs) and cultural burning practices affect Australian forests in diverse ways. The NSW Bushfire Risk Management Research Hub measured fuels at 44 sites in Sydney’s resprouting dry sclerophyll eucalyptus forests, before and after 20 fires. Researchers compared how different fuels were consumed, according to fire severity and fire type.
