UPDATE: PG&E’s 2018 Community Wildfire Safety Program
Vegetation management work began last week and continues through summer and fall at locations throughout Mill Valley. The work will be completed by PG&E crews, and subcontractors, including Davey Resource Group. Crews will be trimming vegetation, including trees and shrubs near power lines, poles and in areas determined to be fire access routes for vehicles and fire crews. Residents in affected areas should receive information from PG&E via phone, mail, and/or doorhanger prior to work, and should look for updates. Please note that in some cases, trimming or removal of trees or shrubs on private property may be necessary to ensure wildfire safety. PG&E will contact property owners prior to any work on their property.
