Chris Johnson has started a new blog on Muckleford Forest. It contains up-to-date information on this season’s past and forthcoming DSE burns in that area. Chris made the following observations about last Friday’s burn:
I was dismayed to see that the extent of the burnt area was more like 80-90% coverage rather than a max of 50% which I understand is what is expected in Zone 3. Some living trees had been burnt out at the base and had fallen. I noted the thin layer of ash and a low level of fuel in the ground litter and ground covers opposite on the unburnt side.
