Climate Impacts for Fire Management in the New Zealand Forest and Rural Landscape

Murray Dudfield FNZIF ONZM

The management of fire in the forest and rural landscape is both an art and a science. As a forestry professional what are the key elements and knowledge which then empowers us to contribute to the efficient and effective management of fire in the forest and rural landscape. Understanding the impacts of climate is one of the keys which is sometimes lost in this debate. The presentation by Murray will highlight the history of the key fire indicators for the past sixty years and look at projections out to 2040. In addition a number of future concerns will be outlined for a group discussion. Future decisions need to take account of the uncertainties and risks, and opportunities that may be the consequences of these decisions.
