Butte Fire Burnt Tree Removal Begins Today

San Andreas, CA...The Calaveras County Department of Public Works announces completion of the process required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to identify hazard burnt trees from the Butte fire area. These are the 8,400 trees that have the potential to fall and impact public roadways. They are located within the County right-of-way and on adjacent private property.

Additionally, compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) has been received and depending on weather conditions removal and processing of those hazardous trees will begin January 30, 2017. Crews will start work on Mountain Ranch Road and Railroad Flat Road. Travelers should expect delays during daylight hours with intermittent road closures and one way traffic. If you have any questions about this program call the: Hazard Tree HOT LINE (209)754-6767

      How many P&J workers does it take to fall a tree? One to cut it, twenty three to watch.

        They're all going to take turns gnawing the bases of the trees, then push them over.

Wow, I can't believe they're doing this so fast, it seemed like it only happened in 2015.
Next thing you know the county will get the ok to remove some of those hazardous dead trees from that company they hired from out of state. Too bad they didn't follow Tuolumne County's decision and hire locals who knew how to fill out the proper paperwork like "NATE'S TREE SERVICE' doing all that work across the river.
Another thumbs up to the old BOS who seemed to ph/uck everything over here.
Good luck (to all of us) to our new BOS
