Description

In the summer of 1993, the New Zealand Forest Research Institute (NZ FRI) and the Kinleith Region of Carter Holt Harvey Forests (CHHF) Limited cooperated in a small-scale experimental burning study involving fresh, cured slash fuels resulting from clear-felling operations of a mature radiata pine plantation near Phohaturoa Rock. The primary goal of this joint venture was 'to demonstrate the experimental fire technique designed to furnish fire behavior data in selected fuel types'.
