Fiji Pine Ltd is calling on public, especially farmers in the Western Division to avoid lighting fires near their pine plantation.
The Company’s Operation Manager Asesela Cokanacagi says farmers need to be cautious, especially sugars cane farmers who intend to burn their cane.
“I know the crushing season has just begun and it’s right for the Fiji Pine Limited to stress the importance of securing the area before you actually begin with your cane burning. Especially on cane area that has already been harvested.”
Cokanacagi also stressed the need for the company to be informed of any plans to light fires near pine plantations.
He added the company needs to understand that unnecessary burning is illegal.
