- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of cutting and burning bracken on shrublands.
'We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Cutting and burning bracken may help to control the cover and density of the species. In addition, burning may reduce bracken leaf litter which may increase the likelihood of shrubland species becoming established.
