The DNR has announced that spring burning restrictions will go into effect starting Monday, March 18 at 8:00 am.

Burning permits for brush or yard waste will be restricted until further notice.

3’x3’ recreational campfires will still be allowed in addition to prescribed burn and financial hardship variances. People seeking a variance permit should contact DNR Forestry Assistant Supervisor Lisa Mueller at 763-284-7206 or

Keep in mind that spring burning restrictions do not ban all burning but rather they restrict the burning most often responsible for wildfires during the time of year when wildfire risk is elevated.
