Open Burning FAQs

Are branches, twigs, and bark from a tree(s) in my yard okay to burn in an approved, outdoor firepit?

Technically, only untreated wood is permissible; this excludes yard waste. The intent of this amendment is not to monitor every single item residents put in their approved firepit, rather ensure all fires are controlled and safely executed within a structure of non-flammable material.

Are in-ground fire pits constructed with stone, surrounded by a large area of pebbles permitted?

The key is having an in-ground fire pit with a surrounding structure of non-flammable material. In-ground fire pits are ok if surrounded by stones, pebbles and all other masonry.
