Central Oregon District Burn Information
Open burning within ODF's Central Oregon District may require a permit. Please contact your local ODF Office if you are uncertain whether a permit is required. Sometimes a permit from your local fire department is needed, rather than from the Department of Forestry. Typically burning small yard debris piles within a local fire department's jurisdiction will be directed by the fire department. All burning of logging slash requires a permit from ODF. Please follow all directions from the burn permit or burn line.
