Research after fire

A Seminar titled "Using Fire as a Restoration Tool" was held on Tuesday 4th March 2014 at North Head.
 Presentations were from Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, Fire and Rescue New South Wales, and Willoughby City Council
and a tour of the restoration work within Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS)
was given by Drs Judy and Geoff Lambert stimulated great discussion amongst the 55 participants.

This area was not burned but was "thinned" by removing tea tree plants.

This is an area before a fire went through.

After the fire regeneration was monitored and compared with thinned areas.
