Fern Tree Bushfire Risk

In late January the City of Hobart held a community forum with Fern tree residents, to educate the community about the risks of major bushfire, and to undertake community consultation on the potential implementation of the Tasmania Fire Service Fuel Break Guidelines in the wet eucalypt forest area around Fern Tree and Wellington Park.

The next stage of the community engagement plan is to hold a series of listening post meetings for residents to learn more about the Fuel Break Guidelines recommendations, and discuss the final look of each treatable area. These meetings will provide a platform to talk about the desired visual outcome and how bushfire protection can be integrated across private and public lands.
