I live just up the Feather River Canyon from Paradise. My buddy and I spent the first two days hauling horses out of the evac areas with our trucks and a couple of borrowed horse trailers. Ugly business.
The community of Paradise very unfortunately contributed to their own problem. The community "leaders" have over the years imposed very strict limits and bureaucratic hurdles on homeowners in regard trimming trees. You can't just cut off a limb or bring up a canopy without first getting a permit, any cut above a certain diameter needs a signoff by an approved arbor consultant, etc. In an area with very narrow roads, they want the visual appearance of lush vegetation in the neighborhoods.
Classic and tragic community mismanagement.
