Defensible Space Inspection and/or Hazardous Tree Identification Assistance 

The Butte County Fire Safe Council has been awarded a FEMA grant to reduce hazardous fuels and create defensible space around eligible homesites that reside within the unincorporated areas of Butte County and are within 500 feet of a main evacuation route.

If your property lies within 500 feet of an officially designated evacuation route, you may be eligible for work to create a 100-foot defensible space around your home and/or removal of hazardous trees from your property. In Phase 1 of this project, we will perform defensible space inspections and identify hazardous trees for removal.

Please respond by filling out our FEMA Right of Entry-Defensible Space and Hazard Tree Removal Intake Form:

The FINAL application deadline has been extended until December 1st, 2023.
If you need assistance, call us at 530-877-0984. If no one answers, please leave a message, and we will get back to you Monday to Thursday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.
