Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Division of Forestry reminds everyone that a debris burn permit is required for leaf and brush piles from Oct. 15 until May 15 each season.
Debris Burn Permits for leaf and brush piles are available at no charge via the MyTN mobile app or online at www.BurnSafeTN.org. Online permits can be obtained daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Central Time for any size leaf and brush burn pile. For larger burns call 877-350-BURN (2876) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Permits are issued only when conditions are conducive to safe burning. If you live inside city limits, check with your municipality for additional restrictions before you burn.
