I think that - fresh ( can be also green ) leaves can't be burnt - is working better :)

In my 58 years of life I have never heard anyone say in any variety of English that something is "unburnable"!!!! Yes something cannot be burnt, is not combustable, is flame resistant......

I'm not a native speaker, but I think that 'nonburnable' is correct English, and hence an good translation.

I am a native English speaker and I would never say "unburnable". I can see what it might mean, but here I would probably say "Green leaves don't burn well."
