QPWS to conduct planned burn

THE Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct a planned burn within the remote area east of Lizard Point and Mt Steamer east of Warwick starting today.

A spokesman said the burn, weather permitting, would be part of the annual hazard reduction and conservation management program for parks and forests.

"As a result, smoke may be seen in the Mt Steamer and Mt Roberts area," the spokesman said.

"The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the park.

"This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration."

For more information phone the Main Range Management Unit office of QPWS on 4666 1133.
