MFPA-PG&E Annual Park Review Completed


The annual vegetation review with PG&E was completed last month.  The good news was we had only two small Oak trees in PG&E’s right of way removed.  A Australian Tea Leaf tree and a Toyon tree were planted as replacements.

Ten small volunteer trees (trees that nature planted) were removed.  Five were encroaching into some of the PG&E towers, two were dead, and three were in PG&E’s right of way.  PG&E requires the tower concrete supports be free of vegetation so they can be periodically inspected.

As a good will gesture, PG&E provided these 3 additional trees and included the cost of watering them for 3 years.

These were planted in the western end of TJ Martin Park.

Here are maps showing the tree locations:
