The temporary ban on all outdoor burning ends today. Georgia Forestry will begin issuing burn permits starting today on a day-by-day basis depending on weather conditions. Burn permits are required for outdoor burning of natural vegetation such as hand piled leafs and limbs and can be obtained at 877-OK2-BURN or online at gatrees.org. Permits must be obtained prior to burning.
Campfires and cooking fires are exempt and do not require a permit.
