Albany --  This is the time of year many of you do outdoor burning, and the state Forestry Commission wants you to know there's an easy way to request a burn permit.  

The Georgia Forestry Commission encourages you to go to their website to apply for a burn permit. They say it makes it more convenient for homeowners and it frees up representatives to handle incoming calls involving fires.  

"Everything's online now with the computer," says Dianne Petris of the Forestry Commission. "You can get a daily permit or you can get a yearly permit which is your annual permit. All you have to do is go to our website, which is www.gatrees.org
and you can access our website and there's all kinds of information there."    

You can also call their toll free hotline,  1-877-OK2-BURN  to avoid busy phone lines at your local forestry commission office.
