Controlled Burning on Hold Due to Wet Conditions

UPDATE: All controlled burns are on hold right now due to wet conditions. We will keep looking for opportunities as weather permits since there is a big need for controlled burning.
  • Burn locations can be accessed through an online map. The color coded map shows active controlled burns in red, monitored burns in yellow and planned burns in blue.  
  • If you live close to a burn location, keep windows closed and if you smell smoke, follow health recommendations on Smokewise Ashland.​
More Information Conditions for burning are good with a weather system that will move smoke away from town.  Controlled burns are a critical part of creating a safer, more resilient landscape and community in the face of increasing fire risk due to climate change and overgrown forests. Find out more about why we burn.
