Montgomery County residents are now able to burn small limbs and leaves they find on their property after the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office lifted the burn ban Aug. 22, according to both the fire marshal’s website and the Texas A&M Forest Service.

The fire marshal’s office also announced the lifting of the burn ban in a Facebook post and reiterated that it is prohibited to burn trash or manmade materials, and all other burning must follow state law procedures.

Montgomery County officials enacted the burn ban July 5 as drought conditions increased the potential for outdoor fires and had previously extended the burn ban for up to 90 days Aug. 2.
