Controlled Burns



CONTROLLED BURNS PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY

The Ashland Forest Resiliency put controlled burns to work for community benefit in the forests and woodlands around Ashland. Scientific studies show forest thinning followed by controlled burning is the most effective way to reduce wildfire impacts to our town and water supply.  Professional teams plan controlled burns during favorable weather that minimizes smoke impacts on our community.

WHY WE BURN

Controlled burns under the right conditions reduce the risk of severe summer wildfires and dense smoke to protect our forests, water supply, economy, and community.

AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION

Controlled burns reduce fire danger and release a fraction of the smoke that severe summer wildfires do.
