Small Controlled Burn Wednesday, November 9th

A small controlled burn of brush piles is planned for Wednesday, November 9th, approximately 3 miles southwest of Ashland near the No Candies trail and 2060-400 road. Smoke may be visible after 10am, the scheduled ignition time. The burn may encompass 8-10 acres, a small size selected that allows smoke to dissipate before affecting town. This is one of the first burn days this fall under the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project, which is in the sixth year of work to restore and protect forests in the Ashland Watershed, source of Ashland's drinking water. Light smoke may linger for several days. There are no road or trail closures.
