BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – The deadline to sign your right of entry forms for hazardous tree removal is Friday, Feb. 21. Tina Walker with Cal OES and Laura Page in charge of recovery in Butte County joined Action News Now at Noon to share what you need to know.
Walker said this deadline is a critical piece when it comes to the tree removal process.
“Without the ROE forms, we can’t really get started,” Walker said. “While the public is submitting their ROE’s – the state is busy setting up an incident management team in Chico, to start the operations. But this won’t be for several weeks.”
Walker said while that is going on, they are busy working on traffic management plans and environmental protection. But they can’t go forward with those plans until they have the ROE’s first.
The town says property owners must enroll in either the Government Tree Program or the Private Tree Program for hazard tree removal.
