Burn Permit Season Starts Early in TN

September 30, 2019

Due to the extremely hot, dry weather conditions across Tennessee, the Division of Forestry launched its burn permit season a few weeks early, on Monday, Sept. 23. Burn permits are usually required statewide from Oct. 15 – May 15.


While Tennessee has not seen an increase in wildfires, safety is a major concern.


The Division of Forestry will not issue permits on days when burning carries a greater risk.


In neighboring Robertson County, agricultural officials have issued a burn ban prohibiting any open air burning of any kind.
