Burning Authorization Required
Agricultural, silvicultural, land clearing, pile and acreage burning all require a burning authorization from the Florida Forest Service.
Burning Authorization Not Required
Authorization is not required to burn yard waste as long as you meet the required setbacks and there are no local, city or county ordinances in place that prohibit burning. Check with your local, city and county officials to find out if there are any restrictions in your area. You can contact the Division of Forestry at 352-797-4100.
