The South Carolina Forestry Commission encourages landowners and all citizens to THINK BEFORE YOU BURN!
State law requires people to notify the Forestry Commission prior to burning outdoors. In most cases, the law applies to burning leaves, limbs and branches that you clean up from your yard. The notification law does not apply within town or city limits.
Simply call 1 (800) 986-3597 for Clarendon County to make a quick, easy debris burning notification. Just dial the appropriate number, listen to the message, and leave your name, address and phone number. Other county hotline numbers may be found at www.state.sc.us/forest/fyard.htm.
