Open Burning Ends November 30 in Gallatin County

Gallatin County Emergency Management

The last day for opening burning in 2019 is November 30th in Gallatin County.  Open Burning is permitted from March 1 to November 30th each year in Montana with a valid burn permit.  Individuals in Gallatin County with a valid burn permit are reminded to finish their fall burning in the next two weeks.

After December 1st, only individuals conducting burning under special authorizations separate from Burn Permits (such as Hazard Reduction Agreements, land management agencies, etc…) in coordination with Montana Department of Environmental Quality are able to conduct burning.  This annual closure for Open Burning is in place to avoid affecting air quality with our frequent stagnant air in the winter season.
