Fire management guidelines SEASON: Autumn/Winter (Apr-Aug). INTENSITY: Low. INTERVAL: 7-25 years. INTERVAL_MIN: 7. INTERVAL_MAX: 25. STRATEGY: Burn < 30% of stands in any year, burning patches each year whenever possible. Do not repeat at 7 year intervals (i.e. if burnt at 7 years since last fire, wait 20+ years for the next prescribed burn). ISSUES: Boronia repanda is fire sensitive.
