Butte County Recovers-The official website for Butte County disaster response and recovery

Is there any financial assistance to help with the cost of removing these trees?

At this point there is no program to assist residents in the cost of tree removal. Some insurance policies have a provision for tree removal in their debris removal policies. If there is a program developed, we will make sure to advertise it as soon as possible. Check with your local fire safe council for other programs that may assist in your property cleanup.

Tree removal is commonly covered under the “debris removal” portion of a home insurance policy.  Contact your insurance company for details on if it is included. Your insurance company may have other requirements for determining the health of tree prior to its removal.

The Butte Fire Safe Council is performing a cost-free chipper program within the area of the Camp Fire. Please contact the Fire Safe Council for details at 530-877-0984.
