The Ashland Forest Resiliency Partnership continues collaborative work to restore the health and resiliency of Ashland’s forests. Treatments are designed to help large, old trees survive fire, insects, disease, and to protect key habitats, water quality and our community by reducing the risk of severe wildfire. The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, City of Ashland, Lomakatsi Restoration Project, and The Nature Conservancy wish to thank the community for their understanding and patience while this important work continues in the Ashland watershed.
