Looks like a secluded KaraOk place to me.

There's no ban currently on burning. That starts sometime in March.

 

So everyone is having to move their burning up earlier. Not as effective as when they wait till March/April (lots more leaves to fall, more undergrowth to dry up) but if the government is going to make it illegal then, better do it now.

 

Now ask yourself, if they don't burn annually/semi-annually, what sort of long-term danger is brewing if the dead matter keeps building up on the forest floor? Wild fires like in the U.S. and Australia?

 

Actually in Chiang Mai Province there has been a total ban on burning since Jan 1. Penalty if caught is 50,000 baht fine and/or 6 months gaol. That's why the burning is done at night.

Not condoning the practice, but wildfires like Australia are unlikely. The difference is wind.

In Australia, winds can be up to 100 km/hr, and they push ember attacks 40 km ahead of the fire front.

I don't think I've seen wind in Thailand above 20 km/hr in 10 years here.

It’s all about the mushrooms, burn the national parks at night,

get more mushrooms 200 baht a kilo.

burn a few hundred rai might make a few thousand baht quickly.

the government banned the commercial selling of the mushrooms and has a total ban on fires......it’s all under control....
