Devastating bushfires in Tasmania

Post by Brett Mifsud » Mon Jan 28, 2019 6:39 am

Hi All
I'd like to let everyone know that Tasmania is currently experiencing its worst bushfire season in decades. To make matter worse, the current fires may have killed or impacted some of the largest and tallest eucalypts known on the planet. Obviously no one can currently get into the areas affected to survey the damage as the fires are ongoing and have been burning for weeks. As soon as I know anything more I will write again.

The trees affected include some of the trees on these pages of my Tasmania's Giant Trees website:
