U.S Forest Service Road 2080: Controlled Burn Planned for Friday, May 17th

Tomorrow, high in the watershed, Ashland Forest Resiliency Partners will manage a controlled burn to consume piles off US Forest Service Road 2080. No trails or roads will be closed.  Smoke will impact part of the Eastview Trail at the second junction of US Forest Service Road 2080.

Ashland Prescribed Fire Training Exchange (TREX)
Fire professionals visiting from three countries (US, Mexico and Spain), 7 states and 20 organizations will help with controlled burns around Ashland through the end of next week.  TREX participants take annual and ongoing training to maintain and develop their prescribed fire qualifications.

Mild fires managed by professional fire teams are an important process for cycling nutrients and helps reduce the ground fuels, small shrubs and young trees. Controlled burns also reduce our community fire risk.
