Amador Continues Efforts To Mitigate Dead And Dying Trees

Amador Continues Efforts To Mitigate Dead And Dying Trees

Amador County is continuing its efforts to mitigate hazards associated with dead and dying trees. Currently a project is underway in the Volcano-Fiddletown area and a project along Bear River Road. Additional projects are in the planning phase. To assist landowners, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has created a pool of funds that can be used to address removal of dead trees within a 100-foot defensible space zones around habitable structures. The program is called the “Regional Conservation Partnership Program” or RCPP. If you want to find out more about the program, contact the Amador County Resource Conservation District in Jackson. The RCPP also provides funding and technical assistance to people with larger properties where tree mortality has had a significant impact or where a landowner simply wants to know more about their options for management. RCPP is funded through 2022 but funds are limited so be the first in line to ask for the service! If you have questions about the county’s program contact Dr. Richard Harris, tree mortality program manager at (707) 685-5508.
