Two Controlled Burns Planned for Wednesday, December 4th

Two controlled burns are planned for Wednesday, December 4th at Horn Gap in the Ashland Watershed due to a better wind forecast at higher elevation. No roads or trails will be directly impacted, though lingering smoke from today's burn will still affect the Horn Gap Trail, No Candies Trail, Potlicker Trail, and the upper 2060 road on the west side of the watershed. Smoke will once more be visible from most areas of the valley throughout the day. Conditions are good for burning and with rain predicted at the end of the week, we're taking advantage of this opportunity. 

Here's a map of the burn units

Controlled burning is a critical part of creating a safer, more resilient landscape in the face of increasing fire risk due to climate change and overgrown forests. For more information and alerts, see below.

More Information

People sensitive to smoke should protect themselves should smoke affect the community. Smokewise Ashland has resources to help protect you and your family.

AFR is a ten-year stewardship project designed to reduce the risk of severe wildfire in the watershed and to protect water quality, older forests, wildlife, people, property and quality of life.
