Due to heavy winter rainfall, the Air District has extended the permissive burn periods for Crop Replacement and Orchard Pruning & Attrition fires until June 30, 2023.

Spare the Air Status

The Air District regulates open burning because of its impact on air quality. Most open burning is illegal in the Bay Area, but some limited types of open burning fires are allowed, primarily for agricultural or natural resource management purposes.

Open burning is only allowed when weather conditions are favorable for smoke dispersion and air pollution levels are not expected to be high. Many types of open burning can only take place during specified periods throughout the year.
