OAR 629-048-0300
Registration of Intent to Burn


In all instances of prescribed burning on forestland within a forest protection district, the operator, federal land manager, landowner, or timber owner must first register with the forester all forestland that is intended to be burned. For forestland subject to Level 1 regulation, burn registration must be completed at least seven days before the first day of ignition. Mandatory registration of prescribed burning on forestland subject to level 2 regulation is effective January 1, 2009.


The forester may waive the seven day waiting period required in section (1) of this rule contingent upon the forester’s approval of a burn plan or conditions of federally prescribed fire policies having already been met.


Information provided for burn registration must be complete and recorded in a standard format approved by the forester.


No operator, federal land management agency, landowner or timber owner shall be allowed to register additional forestland for burning if payment for their previous registration or burning, when required pursuant to OAR 629-048-0310 (Fees for Prescribed Burning), is more than 90 days past due.
