DNR Question of the week

Email

Q: I'd like to get a burning permit and I heard that I can apply for one on the DNR website. Is that true, and what do I need to do?

A: Yes, burning permits are available online through the DNR website: www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire/questions.html.

The website provides information about where to get a burning permit, what materials can and cannot be burned, when burning is allowed, and how to activate the permit. Online permits are $5 per year and can be used multiple times. People need to activate their annual permit on the day they plan to burn.

Permits are also available from the state and federal forestry offices and local fire wardens. Some cities and counties have more restrictive burning regulations than the DNR regulations, so be sure to check with local government offices.
