I understand the urgency to remove hazzardous materials within the city of limits of Redding. However, nothing addresses property like mine. More than 24 acres of dead and dying old growth pondorosa rolling down a steep hill toward my home also poses the danger of starting another fire. What about dry lightening? My homeowners policy only covers 37 trees adjacent to structures on my property. We have hundreds that still have needles falling on very dry ground over steep terrain.

Why are you taking so much of my time with worthless jubberish when you have no intention of helping me. My husband is sick with chemotherapy and all you want are meaningless questions. why was I given this website by Cal fire as a place to find answers?

I've already made two comments. Why are you asking for a third?

Property owners are responsible for the trees that are located on their property. If you need assistance negotiating or understanding your homeowners insurance policy, you can contact the State Insurance Commission at insurance.ca.gov.

If you are in need of additional funding, there are some other resources to check into. FEMA may have grant assistance to help pay for debris removal such as dead trees, and SBA has low interest loans for homeowners with deferred repayment that can assist with the gaps that exist with insurance claims. Both FEMA and SBA are at the DRC in the former Kmart building on Hilltop.

The Debris Removal Operations Center (DROC) will open on Thursday and will be located on the back side of the Bank of America building at 1300 Hilltop Drive. The DROC will be staffed by folks trained to help our residents figure out the debris removal process, so plan to stop by later this week to talk to them.
