What is a hazard tree?

A hazard tree is one that can fall into a public road, right of way or public property but there are a few exceptions.  The public road must be part of the county’s maintained road system.  Also, property adjacent to National Forest lands or National Forest roads do not qualify.   For questions about qualifying hazard trees, please contact Plumas County Public Works at 530-283-6268.
