I noticed that Delos Insurance Solutions was advertising heavily on the thepinetree.net as a provider of insurance in wildfire/brush regions. Their ad contact information was http://www.getdelos.com/calaveras (415) 935-3244.
There is also FAIR Plan which is an insurer of last resort funded by every insurance company doing business in California–an insurance pool. Not sure if the property needs to be a primary residence or not. This is usually offered through independent insurance agents.
I had good luck with Black Bear insurance last year when it was impossible for me to get insurance.

I just received the same notice about two weeks ago. The insurance wants no trees 100’ from structure and 10’ clearance between branches of individual trees. Unless I cut down all the trees on my place plus both neighbors properties I can’t get it to work. They are also talking about the propane tank too close to the house. There is nowhere left to put it except underground. My agent is running up all his available flagpoles but no hits yet.
