Government Program

Government Debris and Hazard Tree Removal Program (Government Program)

The Government Program is available at no out-of-pocket cost to property owners who complete and sign a Right-of-Entry (ROE) form to allow access to their private property for the removal of structural debris and hazard trees.

  • Property owners must submit the ROE form to participate in the Government Program. The deadline to enroll in the Government Program is February 15, 2021. Download the ROE Form.
  • By submitting the ROE form, property owners are granting permission for State contractors to enter onto their property, to safely and efficiently remove debris and Hazard Trees to make rebuilding possible in the North Complex area.
  • ┬áIf you have already completed a Right-of-Entry (ROE) Form for the Government Debris Removal Program, no further follow-up/action is required. The qualifying Hazard Trees will be removed from your property once your structural debris is complete.
  • To avoid duplication of benefits, residents may be required to remit a portion of insurance claim payments specifically reserved for tree removal. If the property was uninsured at the time of the North Complex Fire, there is no out-of-pocket cost to the owner to participate in the Government Program. There are no out-of-pocket expenses to the owner regardless of the actual cost of the tree removal.
