Incineration of garden waste on indoor property is prohibited under current legislation. The local government may grant an exception to the prohibition by local ordinance regulating the conditions and circumstances of burning. Check with your local authority for when to burn in the garden. If the municipality does not have such a decree, then garden waste and plowing should not be burned.
When burning emergency and garden waste, the fire should never be left unattended and the right amount of extinguishing agent should always be provided. Always have a fire extinguisher handy and only start a fire that we can keep under constant watch. Pay attention to the expected weather because the wind helps the fire spread quickly.

Third. Outdoor fire in forest area
1. Set fire to a dedicated fire pit in the forest
Foresters are obligated to establish a permanent and safe fire place in the Montazah forest area for tourism purposes. It is the responsibility of the forest manager to maintain the designated fire pit and ensure that conditions are created to protect against wildfires. Anyone is allowed to set fire to an existing fire place according to the following rules:
before making a fire, the area around the fire pit must be cleaned of leaves and tree branches so that the fire does not spread to the forest;
Unburned coals and ashes must not be left unattended;
Be prepared to put out the fire if the winds rise, and make sure you have firefighting material and equipment (such as water, sand, and a shovel),
After the firing is completed, the fire must be carefully extinguished, it must be ensured that it is asleep, and if possible, the ground must be sprinkled with ashes before leaving.
2. Incineration related to forestry activities
Incineration related to forest management activities (slaughterhouse waste) is allowed only by a person who has written permission from the forest manager or, if not, the owner of the forest. We draw the attention of forest managers to the fact that burning in the framework of forest management activity is an accidental fire hazard activity, which must be notified in advance to the relevant Directorate of Disaster Management.
Detailed rules for burning in the forest area are contained in Section 9 of Decree 4/2008 (VIII. 1.) ÖM. In order to start a forest fire in a protected natural area, except for a designated and established fire pit, a permit from a nature conservation authority is also required.
