It's slashing season!


With much of Queensland already at very high risk on the fire danger ratings, slashing overgrown vegetation, mowing grasses and trimming back low-lying branches is imperative at this time of year.

While back burning is the preferred method of bushfire prevention, it is not always possible and reducing the fuel for fire is critical in helping keep communities safe, making bushfires easier to control and helping to prevent the spread to residential areas.
