A Written Permit is required by law for any open burn
To obtain a written permit, call any of the wardens listed below. Please understand that each person works and their availability is limited. If no one is available, an online permit may be obtained from the Maine Forest Service (link below). There is no charge for permits issued by any of the town wardens but a $7 charge for online permits. The permits are good for two days after 5 p.m. unless it's raining.
A written permit is required to burn brush, wood debris and leaves at any time of the year. Burning is permissible without a permit for residential use of outdoor grills and fireplaces for recreational purposes such as preparing food, recreational campfires kindled when the ground is covered with snow or fires on frozen bodies of water. At no time shall a controlled burn of any kind create a nuisance.
