We've experienced tragic wildfire in our communities and we recognize that people are concerned when smoke is in the air. We share that concern as many of our own workers were personally impacted by the Almeda and Obenchain fires. This spring we are resolute in our work to create a safer and healthier future for our communities and forests by using controlled burns to lower fire danger during a safe time of the year. AFR burns are staffed by professional firefighters, contained by roads and fireline, and conducted during mild weather. We hope you will excuse our smoke and support this incredibly important work for the benefit of people and forests.
