Document Description
Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) is proposing to conduct tree removal/trimming activities within Caltrans’ right-of-way along both lanes of State Route 36 in Tehama County from post mile R25.4 to 27.9 as part of the company’s Wildfire and Safety Plan (WSP) and Community Wildfire Safety Program (CWSP). Ten trees would be removed and one tree would be pruned within Caltrans’ right-of-way. PG&E would also utilize Caltrans’ right-of-way to access tree removal/trimming activities outside Caltrans’ right-of-way (this work would include the removal of 8 trees and trimming of 5 trees). Work-generated debris smaller than approximately four inches in diameter would be chipped in areas with chipper accessibility. Cleared vegetation and woody debris (including chips) would be disposed of in a manner to ensure it does not enter surface water or a watercourse. The project would result in no ground disturbance. Traffic control would be provided while the performing the work.
