Planned burning is carried out in Victoria's public parks and forests by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, and Parks Victoria, with the help of the Country Fire Authority. It involves the planned use of fire under carefully managed conditions to reduce fire fuel on public land, such as dead wood, leaf litter, bark and shrubs.
