How should I burn my material?

All vegetation must be dry and reasonably free from dirt. If your burn pile is wet let it dry before burning. Before it rains, cover your burn pile with a tarp to keep it dry. Only burn vegetation that can be reasonably burned before the next day. Avoid causing a smoke nuisance to neighbors or nearby businesses. 

CAL FIRE has put together an educational fact sheet (PDF) on safety when burning vegetation.
