CalTrans has advertised a contract to remove dead trees on state highways in Amador, Calaveras, and Alpine Counties. The contract will be awarded on May 9 and work is anticipated to begin on or about June 20. The below map shows the locations of the trees.
RIGHT OF ENTRY (ROE) FORMS
There are over 180 properties with dead trees potentially affecting County roads where owners have not returned Right of Entry forms to allow the assessment of dead trees and their removal. Dead trees along County roads on private property not only represent a threat to the roads but they are a liability to the property owner. If trees fall and damage roads or cause damage or injuries to travelers, the private property owner may be responsible for compensation. In some cases, trees that threaten County roads also threaten houses and other assets. A new round of mailing right of entry forms to the owners who did not return forms was just implemented (Feb 2018). Property owners are urged to return them as soon as possible. The benefits of the County program include removal of the trees at no cost to the property owner and alleviation of the hazards posed by the trees.
