The yard debris can accumulate in alarming amounts if not taken care of. An ablaze risk is a heap of leaves, branches, and twigs.

The Forestry Division oversees burn bans in counties, cities, municipalities, towns, and cities. The department is accountable for preventing forest fires. By imposing burn bans, you can reduce the number of forest fires. If a burn ban is in effect, residents aren’t allowed to burn their yard waste. In specific communities, burn bans may last for some time or even throughout the fall and summer seasons.
The yard debris is not appealing. If it isn’t removed from the property within a specific time, it could alter your house’s curb appeal. If a ban on burning is in place, trash piles can’t be burned until the ban is removed.
