These two article from the Financial Review are the best I have seen on the current problems. They cut through the political garbage and the misinformation put about by people with no knowledge. As we all live in a fire prone area we need to know what really drives the problems and what can, can’t and should be done to minimise them. I hope these help to quiet some of the alarmist discussions and keep us all a bit more balanced.
I am still a big believer in fuel reduction but please don’t just burn you property without getting advice and have plenty of help on hand. Even in winter things can get out of control.
