Q: What’s going on with standing burnt trees?

A:   Trees remain a top priority for the Town of Paradise. For trees in the public right of way, the Town has identified about 4,000 trees that will be removed over the next 4-8 months. For trees on private property, the Town is still working with our recovery partners, Cal OES and FEMA, on a program that would help with the cost of removal. Butte County Fire Safe Council is also applying for grants that will help property owners offset the cost to remove trees on private property.  As soon as these programs are confirmed, the Town will make the information about how to apply available.
