NEWS THIS WEEK:

  • This coming week we have the Community Information Meeting on Tuesday, November 5th at 6 pm at the Paradise Alliance Church. This meeting will be focused on summarizing the progress made in the last year for each agency in attendance. We intend for this meeting to turn the page from recovery to rebuilding and provide a look at what the coming year will bring for each agency. We look forward to sharing these highlights with you all.

  • The Paradise Town Council and the Butte County Board of Supervisors passed ordinances requiring the removal of hazard trees damaged by the Camp Fire from private property that may fall into public roadways. Property owners may enter the Government Tree Program to have the trees removed by the State at no out-of-pocket cost. Enrollment in the Government Tree Program requires a Right-of Entry form. Property owners may also identify and remove hazard trees themselves but must submit an inspection form so an inspector may verify the removal of the hazard trees from the property. Property owners may also call the Tree ROE Center directly at (530) 552-3030 or submit Tree ROEs by email at TreeROE@buttecounty.net. The Tree ROE is available for download online at www.ButteCountyRecovers.org/treeremoval. ROE forms may also be picked up at the Tree ROE Centers when they open. Community meetings will be held at various locations throughout the county in an effort to provide information about tree removal programs. Meeting dates and times will be announced in the near future.

      • Community Employment Center: 78 Table Mountain Boulevard, Oroville Hours: Mon. – Fri. 8 am – 5 pm

  • Reminder: Tree RemovalButte County Fire Safe Council Dead and Dying Tree Removal Program: Our Tree Removal Project is focused on removing merchantable dead and dying trees over 12” in diameter that could inhibit new construction. Due to limited funding, we can only help certain landowners who meet specific qualifications within the footprint.

To Qualify, Landowners Must –

    • Have pulled a building permit on the property where tree removal will be conducted. 

    • The property must be within the Camp Fire footprint.

    • 70% of the dead and dying trees to be removed from the property must be conifers. Harvestable trees (Cedar, Pine, Fir) are necessary to offset the high costs of tree removal.

    • Have at least 20 harvestable trees between the property with a building permit and those directly adjacent. 

    • Be paying for reconstruction themselves. 

    • Own property directly adjacent to properties with building permits pulled.

      • Assistance from landowners receiving this announcement by contacting landowners directly adjacent to tree removal is appreciated. 

    • *This program will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited funding, we cannot guarantee we will be able to help all qualified landowners in need of tree removal.*
