Agricultural & Prescribed Burning
CARB supports the state’s mission to protect our natural and working lands through the safe, beneficial burning of cropland wastes and accumulated wildland debris. Our agricultural and prescribed burning programs support local decisions to ensure that public health and safety are protected during managed burns.
