Burn Season Begins December 1st.  Yard trimmings can be burned only on "burn days".  Telephone 1-800-CAL-BURN to hear the Monterey Bay Air Pollution Control District's daily recording declaring whether that day is a "burn day" or a "no burn day".  Their decisions are based on air pollution factors and not fire safety.  Before burning, residents should judge fire safety factors such as high winds.  Detailed regulations and fire safety information are available from the California Department of Forestry, 6059 Highway 9 in Felton, telephone 335-5353.  Some basic rules include:
  • Material being burned must have grown on the property and should be dry.
  • Burning is limited to daylight hours.
  • An adult must be in attendance.
  • Burn piles should be small and a safe distance from flammable vegetation and buildings.
  • A water source should be available.
