Tree removal deadline pushed

Property owners in the Camp Fire burn scar now have until Feb. 21 to submit right-of-entry or inspection access forms to ensure burned trees that threaten to fall on public rights-of-way will be or have been removed.

Butte County extended the deadline (originally Jan. 17) after thousands of owners had yet to either enter the government-sponsored tree removal program or submit access forms to confirm private removal.

So far, forms have been received for only about 6,000 parcels, just shy of half of the 13,000 in Paradise and surrounding communities that are required to submit documentation or face abatement liens.

Forms can be submitted by mail, email or at the Paradise branch of the Butte County Library, 5922 Clark Road.
