Review of Environmental Factors: Burn Program – Tooloom National Park
Wildsite was engaged by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service to prepare a Review of Environmental Factors for an ongoing planned burn program in Tooloom National Park and Captains Creek Nature Reserve.
The most significant fire-management issues affecting the proposal area include:
- Recurring wildfire damage to rainforest (25%) and neighbouring plantations
- Low-frequency fire (22% of sclerophyll forests)
- Severe wildfire impacts to previously long-unburnt sclerophyll forests (19% of sclerophyll forests)
- High-frequency fire in 2% of sclerophyll forests
