  • The Town of Paradise and Butte County have been notified that many private roads in the Camp Fire area are eligible for public assistance funding to remove Hazard Trees through the State Hazard Tree Removal Program. Most of the roads in the Town of Paradise are eligible and about half of the roads in the County area are eligible.  We are working with Cal OES and FEMA to understand which parcels are eligible, and this information on the parcel-level will be available on the Property Tree Removal Map found here by the end of January.  

    • Please keep in mind, staff in the Hazard Tree Removal Center will gladly accept Right-of-entry (ROE) forms for the Government Program or Inspection Access Forms for the Private Program; however, staff will not be able to provide information regarding what private roads are eligible. We encourage property owners to continue checking the Private Property Tree Removal Map on which will be updated when we have further information about private roads. 


  • Rebuild Advocates are available at the BRC to residents of the Town of Paradise and Butte County to help navigate the process of rebuilding and be on hand to help guide people through the rebuilding process. They can also help guide residents through the financial resources available to make rebuilding more affordable such as help people apply for loans and connect with contractors. You may call 530-872-6291 ext. 130 to schedule an appointment. Please reach out, they are here for you.


  • 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 The Tree ROE is available for download online at ROE forms may also be picked up at the Tree ROE Center when open. The Tree ROE Center is located at:
