In upcoming weeks, PG&E will conduct vegetation safety work in high fire-threat areas of Mill Valley to keep trees, limbs and branches away from powerlines and electric equipment.

What to expect:

  • PG&E will inspect trees to identify any safety risks. 
  • If any safety work is planned for your property, PG&E will notify you by phone calls, postcards and door hangers.
  • After work is finished, crews will conduct follow-up quality inspections to ensure work meets required safety standards.
  • Customers may also see crews conducting annual routine safety work in their area.

When conducting vegetation safety work, crews will:

  • Prune limbs and branches that overhang the 4-foot clearance zone around powerlines with a recommended 12-foot clearance minimum at time of prune for year-round compliance
  • Cut down dead, diseased, defective or dying trees that pose a risk to powerlines or electric equipment
  • Evaluate the health and condition of trees tall enough to strike powerlines or electric equipment
