Welcome to Butte County

Butte County is a place of natural beauty with countless opportunities for recreation in both rural and urban environments. Many Butte County residents live in one of the five incorporated towns or cities: Biggs, Chico, Gridley, Oroville or Paradise. Butte County government provides services to residents through 23 diverse departments. Services include elections, road maintenance, public safety, solid waste disposal, and health and human services to name a few.

    The County of Butte and Town of Paradise have launched a website to provide residents affected by the Camp Fire with a one-stop-shop for information and resources for recovery efforts. Together we stand committed to our community’s recovery. Visit ButteCountyRecovers.org for more information.
    The Paradise Town Council and the Butte County Board of Supervisors recently passed ordinances 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.
