Will the County remove dead and fire-damaged trees inside the fire zone?

County Transportation and Public Works (TPW) vegetation specialists and certified arborists, in partnership with Cal Fire and PG&E foresters, will evaluate and remove burned trees that are an imminent threat to road users within the burned areas. The burned trees will be assessed to determine the level of damage and risk to public safety and roadways. Trees identified as a risk to public safety and property will be marked for removal and categorized as presenting an “Extreme” or “High” risk.
