FENZ & WCG Fire Risk

Date: 26th January 2023

Are wilding pines a fire hazard?

We caught up with Mark Mawhinney, Risk Reduction Advisor for Fire and Emergency NZ in our area, to talk about the relationship of wilding pines and wildfires.

This subject is well researched, and we have allocated a specific page on our website which covers the effects of this dangerous combo.

We’re dedicated to clearing wilding pine infestations and in the process, that lowers the fire hazard.

It’s so important that our community exercises safe fire practices in these heated summer months.

Our first responders are volunteers, we should do our best to reduce the number of call outs.
