Is there any health angle you can pursue? Medical, asthma, stubbed toe?
Perhaps a lawsuit on the basis of reduced health? I don't think he is
insured for that. Health angle, property value angle will go nowhere.
Best find out what he is burning. Painted wood. Construction waste is
usually not allowd.
Will you keep us posted?
Find a nice loud leaf blower. Fire it up and aim it at their house whenever
they are burning.
Wear ear protection.
Another alternative is to buy a santa suit, stuff it full of fiberglass
insulation and when not a creature is stirring on xmas eve bring out a
ladder and a broomstick and stuff it down the chimney. They will get the
message next time they light up.
When out on the roof there arose such a clatter,
The neighbour sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window he flew like a flash,
tore open the shutter, and shot Santa in the Ash.
Caution everyone.....do not move to Kansas.
We burn the prairies every Spring for brush control & to maintain the
quality of grass.
Folks from the cities move out to the "beautiful"
spaces complain about all the burning, get a lawyer like city folk
do.......then next Spring they & their lawyers get burned out by
They usually move back east using I-70 and tell stories of how terrible
the people are "out here".
The worst pollution to health out here are the lawyers from back East.
Just my thoughts under the 1 & 2nd amendmet.
In Louisiana, we burn the leaves off the sugar cane before the cane is
harvested. Sometimes it looks like black snow when the wind is just right. I'm
not sure what happens next. Is all this smoke in the air going to create
"nuclear winter" and we need to burn more to stay warm or "global warming" and
we need to save the trees for the shade.

Amazing you can still do that. They're not burning the paddies out in
NorCal like they used to. I can remember days when you couldn't shoot
approaches at Beale because of the smoke.
You burn your rice straw?
Naw, he's talking about making approaches to Beale Air Force Base,
home of the SR71.

Or they complain about the manure smells, yes. Worse, though, are the
people who move out, see the real locals burning off their fields, and
then decide to do it themselves. They seem to miss the little minor points
about picking a day without high winds and when everything is bone-dry.
One guy burned up his field, his neighbor's yard, and his neighbor's
shed with a classic Harley (fully tricked out and restored) in it.
Didn't do much for neighborly relations, I would imagine.
One guy, the cheif told him he was going to take his matches away, after
having a "controlled burn" get away from the third year in a row.
there is a family of farmers out in the Moody area that two years in a row
burned down there hey shed, on Christmass day, on there third year the fire
department showed up just in case

Consider this to be neighborly advice.
Catch the neighbor sometime when his wife is not present
and ask him what he has been burning lately.
You were not clear if he had burned befor without a problem
over the last thirty years,. If so something has changed like
maybe he's burning elm (elm stinks when its wet dunno
how it smells when burnt) or his chimney needs cleaning,
or maybe he has a dead racoon or bird nest or something
in his chimney.
The quickest route to a solution to the problem would involve
his cooperation. It seems clear he is willing to cooperate,
you just have to get the wife out of the loop.
