Burn Permit and Burn Barrel Information
Specific Smoke Management/Burning Advisory Information:
- Unless you are in a rural or city fire department protection area, burn permits for burn barrels and small amounts of yard debris are not required. If you are under the protection of a rural or city fire department, please call and ask what their burning restrictions are. Burning within the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation requires a permit from the CTUIR. Follow all requirements within the permit.
- Burning of slash from forestry and logging activities requires a Notification of Operation/PDM from the Oregon Department of Forestry. In addition to this permit, the local Oregon Department of Forestry office must be contacted prior to ignition.
- Before burning in northeast Oregon, it is important to check weather conditions related to smoke management. For smoke management forecasts call (541) 963-9781 or visit the following website http://www.oregon.gov/ODF/FIRE/fire.shtml#Smoke_Management.
- Slash Burns must be registered with the local Oregon Department of Forestry office at least 7 days prior to burning and burning accomplishments reported within 7 days after burning.
