Forest owners in Australia are very susceptible
to the risk of bushfire. Most would say that fire is the greatest
single threat to their investment. By understanding how fires
behave it might be possible to design a farm forest and implement
management strategies, that minimise the risks. Growers may
also able to take out fire insurance to protect their investment.
If their forest is burnt farmers may be able to salvage some
timber. Even if the trees are not killed fire can lead to the
development of defects in the timber.
