  • 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. There are two options to remove these hazard trees:

    1. Fill out a ROE for the State Program to have eligible hazard trees removed by the state.  

    2. Fill out an Inspection Access Form to enter the Private Hazard Tree Removal Program and hire a private contractor for tree removal.

  • As with the debris removal program, the State will be reimbursed through insurance settlement for tree removal.  The private program will be at the property owners’ cost. Property owners may 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 are being held at various locations throughout the county in an effort to provide information about tree removal programs.
