It needs a variety of burning types and temperatures in different conditions. They the bush was managed prior to European settlement certainly
wasn’t just an act of nature but careful and considered management in combination with the natural aspects of our flora.
Example of burns; ‘cold burning’ ie in the cooler months to burn off the undergrowth to midway up the canopy seemed to of been one of the more
prevalent and effective burn types. Many native species are simply decimated with a raging fire where the cool burn scenario provides just enough heat
to crack seed pods etc without destroying the tree/plant.
Reading a really great book on it at the moment called The Greatest Estate on earth. The first Europeans in all parts of Australia reported the same
thing; park like lands resembling a gentleman’s park in England. It’s now a choked up mess with most of the ancient trees logged and does not
resemble its former glory at all.
