Please see the links below, which can provide context to the work we are doing in the Woodacre, San Geronimo, and Fairfax areas and help answer some of your questions. We mark trees slated for work with yellow paint, and work with property owners to review and approve the work. I’ll check with my team to confirm residents in the area have received proper notification.
