NWOA terminates fire season

Effective today, 10/11/17, fire season has ended in the Northwest Oregon Area.  This applies to NW-1, NW-2, and NW-3 zones.  Many other areas across the state are still in fire season, and fires can potentially occur at any time of the year.

Here in the Forest Grove District, now that we've received adequate rainfall to reduce the risk of fire spread, we will be shifting our attention to slash treatment, prescribed fire, and smoke management in the area. Contact the office or your forester if you have questions on permitting or need asssistance accomplishing your objectives.
