Controlled Backburning or Raging Bushfires: Finding a balance.
This is a practice where, as the name suggests, a controlled fire is lit in order to reduce the amount of flammable material in forests. Factors such as wind-speed and direction, and also the dryness of the land and recent rainfall are taken into consideration to keep the fires slow-moving and under control.
