Database capture of individual significant-scale Australian forestry plantation fire losses

Database capture of individual significant-scale Australian forestry plantation fire losses

FWPA has developed a report and database capturing historical information on larger-scale Australian plantation fire losses. 

The aim of the report was to build a knowledge base that will assist with risk management strategic planning in the future. 


Geddes Management was engaged to gather the data from Australia’s forest growers, who provided information on plantation

fire losses for events whereby 100 ha or more was burnt. The information dates as far back as the early 1920s.



Also attached is a database of effected areas.
