BUTTE COUNTY AND TOWN OF PARADISE SEND LETTERS TO PROPERTY OWNERS REGARDING HAZARD TREE REMOVAL PROGRAM
Oroville, Ca— The Camp Fire recovery process continues to move forward as debris removal programs near completion and hazard tree removal programs begin. Butte County and the Town of Paradise recently mailed letters to property owners who may have hazard trees, burnt during the Camp Fire, on their property that could impact the public right-of-way or public improved property.
The letters inform property owners of the mandatory requirement to enter into the Government Hazard Tree Removal Program or the Private Hazard Tree Removal Program. Those who enter into the Government Hazard Tree Removal program will be required to submit a Tree Right-of-Entry (ROE) form, which grants permission to contractors hired by the State to safely and efficiently remove hazard trees from their property.
Property owners who choose not to participate in the Government Hazard Tree Removal Program will be required to submit a Private Program Inspection Access form, allowing the Town of Paradise or Butte County to inspect their property in order to confirm all hazard trees that may fall into the public right-of-way are removed.
Tree ROEs and Private Program Inspection Access Forms are included with the letter sent to property owners. Some property owners may have already received the letter, others may receive the letter soon. The deadline to submit Tree ROEs and Inspection Access Forms is December 20, 2019.
The letter, Tree ROE, and Private Program Inspection Access Form are attached to this email can be accessed online at www.buttecountyrecovers.org/private-property-tree-removal.
