Tasmanian timber company Gunns has announced it would no longer burn its plantation forest floor wood residue from today.

In a statement from the company, it said it would virtually eliminate Gunns' contribution to smoke pollution from this practice.  Company managing director Greg L'Estrange said the change was in response to community and environmental group concerns.

He said the policy would apply to all of its Tasmanian plantations.
