County to Accept Tree Removal Right-of-Entry Forms and Inspection Access Forms Through January 17, 2020

OROVILLE, Calif. – 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. 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 removal of the hazard trees from the property. 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. Butte County will accept late submissions of the Right-of-Entry form and Inspection Access Form until January 17, 2020.

ROE Forms and Inspection Access Forms can be submitted in person at the following Tree ROE Centers:
