Burning Laws & Information  in  California
CAL FIRE's Burn Restrictions and Burn Permits
During certain times of the year residential landscape debris burning of dead vegetation is allowed.
However, homeowners should always check with their local CAL FIRE station and local air quality management agency before burning.

In many area burn permits may be required. For more information on debris burning safety download an educational fact sheet Click HERE.

To find out if it is a permissive burn day in your area, contact your local air quality district. Contact information may be found at the State Air Resources Board website Click HERE.

While burning outdoors may be the most convenient way to get rid of landscape debris, extra caution is required to ensure a wildfire is not sparked. Follow these tips:
  • Only dry, natural, vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings that originated on the property may be burned.
  • Burning household garbage is NOT allowed.
  • Piles will be no larger than four (4) feet in diameter.
  • Provide clearance around the pile that is ten (10) feet in diameter by removing all material that will burn, down to bare mineral soil.
  • Have a water source on hand such as a charged garden hose or a minimum of a five (5) gallon backpack, pump type water extinguisher.
  • Responsible adult needs to be in attendance at all times.
  • NEVER burn on windy days.
