Note: Open Burning was prohibited in NYS as of October 14, 2009
except for the following:
Ceremonial or celebratory bonfires are allowed.(NOTE: Check and check...)
In towns with a total population less than 20,000 (Editorial note: that would be Thurston...), you may burn tree limbs with attached leaves. The limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter and 8 feet in length (also referred to as brush). However, this is not allowed from March 16 through May 14 due to the increased risk of wildfires. [See NYSDEC website for full details...]
