On Thursday, December 9th, Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is managing a high elevation controlled burn above Reeder Reservoir (source of Ashland's drinking water) off the Ashland Loop Road between West Fork and Weasel Creek. Yesterday, Ashland Forest Resiliency(AFR) completed 144 acres of controlled burning to remove fuel piles on forest lands above town. With good burn conditions at high elevations, AFR is making steady progress this week for improved forest health and community wildfire safety.
