UH: Extension for Improved Fire Management

Undertake research into appropriate fire management strategies, with extension of results to landholders.

Why it is important?

Landholders are responsible for fire management on large areas of private land, but many do not have access to good information to enable appropriate planning and management of fires.

Examples of Local Action

  • Focus on extending information to landholders in drier areas, such as around Watsonville.
