Through genetic improvement Pinus radita D. Don, a sometimes windswept tree growing in small areas of the Monterey Bay and Cambria areas of California (USA) has become a highly significant plantation species in southern Australia (New Zealand and Chile). Other members of the pinus genus have followed into areas not suited to P.radiata. During the period of P. radiata plantation development in Australia, management of most natural eucalypt stands continued on a much less intensive scale. In sereval overseas countries parallel scenarios were in place with members of the eucalypt genus. However, with naural good form and vigour their initial planting stock was genetically ahead.
The Australian Bush Fire Fighting environment is recognized as one of the most hazardous tasks in the world. Historically, much of the burden for fire fighting bush fires in Australia has rested with the numerous volunteers found throughout the country. It is only over the past 100 years or so that professional crews from the carious Forestry services, National Parks and Wildlife Services, and other Government land management Authorities have become involved in fire suppression in this country. The volunteer Brigades still contribute the largest body of fire fighters in Australia, however it would be fair to say, the least trained.
