PG&E failed to trim ‘numerous trees’ near power lines in work to reduce fire risk, report says


San Francisco Chronicle

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is failing to identify and trim thousands of trees near power lines that could pose dangers in wildfire areas and has deficiencies in record keeping and inspector training, a court-appointed monitor said in a report [which stated] “Not only is PG&E falling short of its (enhanced vegetation management goals) for the year, but the quality of the completed work is questionable.”
