Fire management guidelines SEASON: Autumn/Winter (Apr-Aug). INTENSITY: Low. INTERVAL: 12-30 years. STRATEGY: Burn < 20% of stands in any year, burning patches each year whenever possible. ISSUES: A fire-"shy" ecosystem, although also somewhat fire dependent. Do not repeat fire at 12 year intervals. Once burnt at 12 years, burn at 25+ years on the next cycle.
Comments A rare ecosystem, wholly contained within Girraween National Park.
