Controlled Burns in Sand Dunes State Forest
The Department of Natural Resources will conduct controlled burns of two brush piles in Sand Dunes State Forest in Orrock Township.

The DNR's Forestry Division recently harvested timber from the area and collected leftover tree tops and branches in two piles that will be burned. The burning will be done to make it easier to plant new trees and control buckthorn.

The burn areas are north and west of the intersection of Sherburne County Road 10 and 170th Street. The burning will happen between Aug 31 and April 1. The exact days are weather dependent, but the DNR expects there to be 5-8 days of actual burning.

Residents in the area can expect to see smoke from the fires, which will happen at optimal times when fire danger is low and when the wind is such that the smoke doesn't drift to the residences east of the burn areas.
