Fuel reduction burns are an important tool, but not a silver bullet, Tasmanian Greens Leader Cassy O'Connor says.
Ms O'Connor said the Greens supported a diverse range of fuel reduction methods and strongly supported using strategic burns to reduce fire risk.
"Burns should take into account localised needs, science and the deep knowledge of Aboriginal land managers," she said.
"We also need to be mindful that as the fire season gets longer, the window for safe burning shrinks.
"As the climate heats, we have to be vigilant and properly resource fire services to mitigate fire risk."
Ms O'Connor said science made clear previously logged areas were more susceptible to fire.
"We saw that in the Huon last summer," she said.
Tasmanian Liberal Senator Eric Abetz was sceptical about the Greens' attitude to fuel reduction burns.
"The Greens claim in their official policy they support burn-offs for the purposes of saving lives and reducing the intensity of fires," Senator Abetz said.
"In practice, they always find a reason to oppose each proposal."
New Premier Peter Gutwein has flagged possible wider use of mechanical clearing to reduce fire risk.
Ms O'Connor said the Greens urged Mr Gutwein not to use fuel reduction as an excuse for broad-scale land clearing and logging forest.
"Fuel reduction is about community safety, and should never be an excuse for destructive, politically motivated policy," she said.
She said communities and wilderness were becoming more vulnerable to fire as Tasmania became increasingly hot and dry.
"The catastrophic fires on the mainland have left no one in any doubt we are in a climate emergency." she said.
"It is the duty of our government to recognise this fact, and do everything possible to help communities adapt accordingly.
"That means listening to the experts and the evidence, rather than trying to play political games."
Mr Gutwein said during the week the government needed to do more on climate change.
