Ashland Forest Resiliency
The Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project (AFR) is a collaborative forest restoration project that reduces the risk of severe wildfire across public and private land in and around the Ashland Watershed. We work to protect old trees, wildlife habitat, homes, trails and our water source by thinning overcrowded forests and conducting controlled burns. AFR is a partnership of four organizations: The City of Ashland, Lomakatsi Restoration Project, U.S. Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest and The Nature Conservancy.
Why Controlled Burns?
Our project helps restore fire's crucial role in our watershed. Each year our fire prone region experiences severe wildfires which cost millions of dollars to suppress. AFR Partners address this challenge by working with nature to introduce low intensity controlled burns under mild conditions.
