Our Forest Needs Fire Historically, fires burned on an average of every 8 years across the low and mid elevations of the Ashland Watershed, keeping our forests healthy for millennia. In fact, this kind of fire is essential for certain plants and wildlife, cycling nutrients, and sustaining healthy human and natural communities.
