This tool is available through the Florida Forest Service to help the public see where all active open burning authorizations are located. These data are updated regularly, so the map will change as new authorizations are added. Open burning is authorized for a variety of goals. The following legend will help you interpret the information provided on the map.
Acreage burns include:
- Silvicultural burning to improve wildlife habitats and clear out overgrowth that fuels out-of-control wildfires
- Agricultural burning, such as in pastures, rangeland, and sugar cane fields
