Local business owner Charlie McShane has been pushed into a corner by what he says is a hypocritical federal Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI), and as a result had to burn more than 250 tonnes of timber over the weekend.

The massive bonfire which stretched into the distance was also used as a form of protest and an attempt to draw attention to his plight.
