PG&E begins tree hauling program for Glass and LNU Lightning Complex fires

Santa Rosa, CA  –  July 12, 2021  –  In late June, Pacific Gas & Electric Company initiated a 2020 wildfire tree hauling program and began notifying property owners in the Glass and LNU Lightning Complex burn scars of the program. 

Many property owners have fallen trees on their property that PG&E cut down when the utility performed its post-fire utility restoration work. This new program may allow property owners the option of having PG&E come onto their property to remove those fallen trees.

This tree-hauling program is being run solely by PG&E and is independent of the State of California’s debris removal program. According to PG&E, all property owners that had trees felled by PG&E during the 2020 wildfire recovery process may be eligible for this program. The county understands that property owners will be asked to sign a permission form to enter the program. 

The County of Sonoma does not have further information on PG&E’s program. All inquiries should be directed to WildfireWoodManagement@pge.com or 1-800-PGE-5000.
