BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A Butte County contractor is removing Camp Fire burned trees that threaten public roads in Butte Creek Canyon.
Butte County public works said the section of Honey Run road was a top priority. However, it's just the beginning of a project to clear 11,000 trees.
The $780,000 for the project comes from FEMA and should be finished by the end of November.
"We're going to remove about 600 hundred trees and they all have a reason," Larry van Groningen, Bay Area Tree Specialists said. "We don't want them to fall and block the road. There is only one way in and one way out of the canyon"
This week the road is closed near Horning Ranch, drivers can use Centerville road as an alternate route to Magalia.
