Planned burning is the deliberate use of fire under specified conditions for the purposes of managing fuels, ecological systems, agricultural green pick or weeds. This paper reviews planned burning as applied in Tasmania, and the underpinning base of knowledge and experience. Subsequent papers cover the fire risk assessment procedure for planned burning, and revised guidelines for conducting planned burning in Tasmania. The aim of this work is to minimise the risk of adverse outcomes from planned burning whilst ensuring that burning is performed safely and meets fire management objectives.
