PG&E will begin a tree hauling program in the burn scar zones of the Glass and LNU Lightning Complex wildfires in Sonoma County and is notifying property owners who have fallen trees on their parcels of land. 

A PG&E spokesperson said many property owners have fallen trees on their property that PG&E cut down when the utility performed its post-fire utility restoration work. But, 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'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. 

For more information about the program, property owners may contact PG&E by email at or by calling (800) 743-5000.
