Upcoming Tree Work: Sonoma Mountain Parkway

Working closely with the City of Petaluma, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) recently completed important gas safety work in the community. The work involved addressing trees, brush and other items that were located too close to the natural gas transmission pipeline and could block first responder access in an emergency.


Trees removed will be replaced and planted in more appropriate locations. Part of the mitigation includes replacing median island trees that are in poor health on Sonoma Mountain Parkway between Corona Road and Madison Street. The work will involve planting 60 new trees, including maples, hornbeams and English oaks. Removal of the diseased ornamental pear trees on the islands will begin in early January. The planting project is expected to take approximately one month to complete. Work hours will be between 8am and 5pm and minimal traffic impacts are anticipated. For more information, please contact PG&E’s local customer outreach specialist Cristina Hlebakos at 1-707-206-2599 or To learn more about PG&E’s ongoing gas safety efforts in our community, visit
