Pile Burning Workshop

Winter can be a great time pile burning brush and other woody fuels around your home. Learning how to construct and prepare hand piles takes skill and an understanding of safety and weather considerations to minimize the risk of escape.

This two-part class will cover fundamental topics
to hand pile burning such as:
• Safety and liability considerations
• Weather conditions and interpretation
• Navigating the permitting process

There will also be in-person local
demonstrations for gaining hands-on skills.

Whether you have been burning piles for years
or are just getting started, this class has
something for everyone!
