Controlled Burning Tomorrow in the Ashland Watershed

On Tuesday, December 7th, the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest will manage a controlled burn of burn piles on behalf of the Ashland Forest Resiliency project in the Horn Gap area of the western Ashland Watershed.

Due to the location away from town and trails, authorities do not expect smoke impacts except along the main 2060 road, though that area is not well used at this time of year.

Smoke may be visible during the day if clearing allows.

Burning of brush piles lowers fire danger and is an important step in restoring forest resiliency and preventing severe summmer wildfires.
