The fire risks of wilding pines and exotic forests

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:18 pm on 6 October 2020

Fire and Emergency New Zealand is continuing its investigation into the cause of the fire at Lake Ōhau.

Jesse speaks to Adele Fitzpatrick, the chief executive of Project Crimson, which leads Trees That Count.
