California, Oregon and Washington, along with several other western states, continue to experience an increase in wildfire risk and a longer wildfire season. To ensure the safety of our customers and communities, PG&E is taking steps every day to keep trees away from powerlines, improve the safety and reliability of our electric system and reduce the risk of wildfires.

As part of this safety work, we inspect approximately 100,000 miles of overhead powerlines and prune or cut down more than 1 million trees annually. To continue to provide safe and reliable service to our communities, we perform different vegetation work depending on the type of electric equipment and surrounding environment.
