Controlled burning of the heather


An essential management tool which re-invigorates old woody heather and encourages seedlings to grow in the bare patches created.

Heather seeds lie dormant for long periods and a brief fire breaks the dormancy.

They burn numerous small patches as the intention is to create a mosaic of heather at different ages in a small area.

The aim is to burn each area around once in 15 years.
