The biggest issue I see with fires is BBQ coals dumped on root flares.

Many places I have been this is a problem.

Bonfires tend to grow in size with alcohol consumption and eventually one
will be large enough to damage the trees.

I am dealing with a planning application for limited camping in a
mature wood of 13 hectares.

Part of use will be small fires under or close to tree canopies by
campers for cooking and warmth at night (not bonfires)



Has anyone any experience on restrictions imposed on such fires by
planners?

On the face of it harmless but smoke could affect birds and bats.
