Use stoves for cooking -- if you need a fire, build one only where it's legal and in an existing fire ring. Leave hatchets and saws at home -- collect dead and downed wood that you can break by hand. Burn all wood to ash.
Do not try to burn trash, including foil, plastic, glass, cans, tea bags, food, or anything with food on it. These items do not burn thoroughly. They create noxious fumes, attract wildlife like skunks and bears, and make the area unsightly.
Where campfires are permitted, leave the fire ring clean by removing others' trash and scattering unused wood, cold coals, and ashes 200 feet away from camp after the fire is cold and completely out.
