Burning the stump is not allowed by the Fire Code. Such an action during the fire season can lead to a catastrophic wildfire. No uncontrolled open burning of any kind is allowed within the City of Larkspur. Stumps are typically removed by grinding. Smaller stumps can be pulled from the ground with a chain using a winch.
If you do choose to use a fire pit during the summer fire season and it causes a wildfire, you could be held liable for any damages plus the cost to fight the fire. So use the fire pit with extreme caution, have a charged garden hose ready to use, and fully extinguish the fire before leaving the area. Do not deposit ashes in the trash can. Hours later, this can lead to a smoldering fire that eventually consumes the garbage can and anything nearby, such as the wall of your home or garage.
