Burn Permits

Slash Burn Window is November 1 to March 31
and Requires a Burn Permit.

Pile burning, a type of prescribed fire, is an important tool in helping to protect communities from extreme wildfires by removing excess vegetation or “fuel” available to a fire.

Burn permits are required within EFR’s fire district and are issued by the county, not Evergreen Fire/Rescue. Please select the county of the location of the burn and complete the application instructions.
