Hazard burning

Barbara Turner, Byron Bay

Wouldn’t it be better to collect leaf litter instead of back- or hazard-reduction burning?

Most plant litter has the potential to enrich and become nutrients to protect scorched, burnt out and degraded areas.

Commercial mowers with bagging attachments would be a quick, safe and easy way to collect the leaf litter to spread over the burnt out areas to enrich soil and lock-in moisture.

Less danger also of starting fires which can get out of hand.
