Unmaintained Dry Vegetation is a Fire Hazard - City Ordinance Enforced Beginning May 1
This year our area has experienced a very dry spring. With warmer weather approaching and fire season beginning earlier than normal on May 1st, vegetation in fields, hillsides and vacant lots is already drying out. Unmaintained dry vegetation is a significant fire risk during fire season. Fire can race through such vegetation endangering lives and property. The best way to minimize the fire risk is to reduce the available fuels. Please do your part to reduce the threat of wildfire this year by cutting dry vegetation prior to fire season.
The City of Medford’s weeds and grass ordinance is effective May 1st
