Burning permits are required statewide. Burning permits allow the permit holder to burn vegetative waste during certain hours. The MN DNR, counties and municipalities can turn off burning permits in their areas if conditions warrant.
During winter months, burning permits are required in areas with less than 3 inches of snow cover. In areas with 3 inches or more snow cover, no burning permits are required.
