What can I burn?

Firewood, bare untreated wood (ideally with a moisture content less than 20% by weight), and charcoal briquettes are allowed. Any other material is prohibited. Please note that driftwood from the beach does not meet the criteria for firewood. The EPA advises against burning driftwood from saltwater.

Any other questions regarding burning can be found on the Outdoor Burning Page.
