Abstract or Summary
  • The displacement of Native Americans in the 19th century began an era of change in fire-adapted forests of the west. Settlement land use practices and the control of naturally occurring wildfire has altered historic fire cycles. Vegetation has changed from more open conditions composed of fire adapted species to dense forests composed of fire intolerant species. The result is increased risk of large-scale, high-intensity wildfires that threaten forest ecosystems adapted to lower intensity fires (Agee, 1993). In the Ashland Creek watershed, our municipal water supply and late-successional forest habitat are at risk due to the increasingly homogenous composition of forests. Also at risk are lives, property, and infrastructure where development intermixes with forest lands. The Ashland Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is the result of community wide fire protection planning and the compilation of project documents developed by the staff and citizens of the City of Ashland relative to managing private and public land in and adjacent to the Ashland Creek Watershed. This plan was compiled in the summer of 2004 in response to the federal Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 (HFRA). A key element of this plan addresses the proposed US Forest Service Ashland Forest Resiliency Project (AFR) in the Upper Bear Creek watershed.
