Focus On Orchard Burning - Tear-Out and Prunings
Focus On Orchard Burning - Tear-Out and Prunings (Number of pages: 2) (Publication Size: 36KB)
|Description||We’ve known for a long time that smoke is bad for human health, whether it’s from a cigarette or from an outdoor fire. When you burn orchard materials, the resulting smoke can affect your neighbors in the entire surrounding area. It’s illegal to unreasonably impact others with smoke from your fire. Many growers have already heard from upset neighbors and downwind residents. As residential burning is being phased out for most citizens, growers are also looking for alternatives.|
