BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Resource Conservation District will be paying 75% of the costs of restoring forestland to those who lost forestland in the Camp Fire.

The program said anyone with more than a few acres of burned forest is eligible to get financial help removing dead brush, replanting trees, protecting seedlings, and erosion control under the USDA's Emergency Forest Restoration Program.

Landowners will be able to choose their own contractors. These funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Baby Ponderosa Pines, Douglas firs, and oaks will be available as early as March 2020. Landowners can sign up starting Aug. 20 and will stay open for 60 days.

To sign up, landowners can go to the USDA building in Oroville and fill out a short application. They are asking those filling out applications to bring a property tax bill or statement or a grant deed to make the application process move faster.

Contact Araceli Mazariego, Farm Service Agency specialist, at 530-693-3165, or email araceli.mazariego@usda.gov
