The recent winter storms were hard on Tennessee’s landscape. Heavy ice brought down limbs and trees across the state. Brush pile burning is one of the best ways for landowners to clean up woody debris from the storms. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is reminding citizens that outdoor burning requires a permit through May 15. If you are burning a leaf or brush pile that is smaller than 8 feet by 8 feet in size, log on to burnsafetn.org to secure a permit. For a larger burn, apply for a permit by calling your local Division of Forestry burn permit phone number Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Phone numbers can be found by visiting burnsafetn.org. Burn permits are free. Residents should check with their city and county government for any local restrictions. In 2014, debris fires that got out of control were the leading cause of wildfires in Tennessee, burning 5,366 acres statewide. Burning debris without a permit is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine and jail time.
