Ms Woodruff to move—That the House:—
(1) Understands that in March 2017 Forestry Tasmania proposed to light 230
regeneration burns in Autumn 2017, stating these burns would only occur when
weather conditions were suitable and smoke could disperse.
(2) Notes that on 29 to 30 April 2017 in communities across the State, and specifically at
New Norfolk, Judbury, Cygnet and Huonville, residents were subjected to thick
choking smoke from Forestry Tasmania burns.
