What is banned? The open burning of untreated wood from construction or demolition and the open burning of vegetation from clearing or maintaining non-agricultural property. “Prescribed burning of agricultural or forestlands for silvicultural, agricultural or wildlife management purposes is allowed under the AFC Burn Permits for these counties.”
