County Tree Mortality Mitigation Program: Right of Entry Forms available

Greetings, I am the Tree Mortality Project Coordinator for the County. We are in the process of developing projects to remove dead trees that may affect County infrastructure. We have completed one project on Joyce Road and are in the process of another one on Belden Mine Road. We need to have permission from property owners to identify and remove dead trees. Next week we will be sending out over 200 requests for right of entry to property owners.

Removal of dead trees along County roads by the County requires landowner approval for right of entry. Amador County has received a state grant to remove hazard trees that could fall on County roads. Before the County can do the work on your property you must return a Right of Entry form to the County granting permission for the work to be done.  There is no cost to the landowner for this work.

If you receive a letter from the County Tree Mortality Coordinator requesting you to return a Right of Entry Form, it is important that you return the form within 10 days.  See the County’s webpage at for more information.

Return completed forms to Amador County, Clerk of the Board, 810 Court Street, Jackson, CA 95642 or use the feature allowing you to e-mail the form to the County and its Tree Mortality Coordinator. Please contact Dr. Richard Harris at (707) 685-5508 with any questions.

Thank you,
