What is Pile Burning?
Slash is the leftover tree limbs, tops and other residue left by logging activities. Pile burning is when slash is piled together and burned during safe conditions, usually during the winter after it has been left to dry. The Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation establishes strict rules on what can be burned in land-clearing fires, where they can be located, the atmospheric venting conditions that must be present, and how long the burning can last.
