BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Paradise Town Council and Butte County Board of Supervisors announced they will accept late submissions of the tree removal right-of-entry forms and inspection access forms until January 17, 2020.
The Paradise Town Council and the Butte County Board of Supervisors passed ordinances requiring the removal of hazard trees damaged by the Camp Fire from private property that may fall into public roadways.
Property owners of eligible properties are required to enter the Government Tree Program to have the trees removed by the State at no out-of-pocket cost, the board of supervisors said.
Enrollment in the Government Tree Program requires a Right-of-Entry form. Property owners may also identify and remove hazard trees themselves, but are required to submit an inspection access form so an inspector may verify the removal of the hazard trees from the property, supervisors said.
The Hazard Tree Removal Program is required and property owners who don’t sign up will ultimately be out of compliance with local codes. This means the Town or County will have to remove the trees and lien the property for the full cost of the tree removal.
ROE Centers will be closed on Dec. 23 - 25, and Jan. 1 for the Holidays.
