Beaver County facilitates the removal of brush and tree species within County road allowances which; pose a risk to traffic safety, inhibit road maintenance operations, and/or compromise the integrity of a road. The County performs these operations on a three year rotation throughout Beaver County, and utilizes a combination of mechanical and chemical control methods to control trees and brush within County roadways; in line with the County’s Roadside Brush Control Policy.

Beaver County accepts backsloping applications from residents until May 31 for completion in a given calendar year.
