OROVILLE, Calif. – The Paradise Town Council and the Butte County Board of Supervisors passed ordinances today 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 removal of the hazard trees from the property.
