Moreton Bay Regional Council will conduct a hazard reduction burn on Tuesday 16 July at Hogan Park, Highvale weather permitting.
Ignition will occur from mid-morning and will be completed mid-afternoon.
Residents in Highvale, Samford Valley and surrounding areas may notice smoke during and after the burn.
Residents are advised to stay clear of the burn site during and in the days following the event.
Asthmatics and those sensitive to smoke are advised to stay indoors and keep their windows and doors closed.
Motorists in the area should drive to the conditions. Pets and livestock should be secured, if necessary.
A wildlife spotter will be on site before, during and after the burn to ensure the safety of all fauna.
Council hazard reduction burn crews work closely with the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services to undertake planned burns to reduce fuel loads ahead of the fire season later in the year.
