The contractors listed below are provided to you by Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council’s Board of Directors. While there may be other contractors on the mountain qualified and capable, our directors have personal experience with the work performance of those listed below or have verified references. Where licenses are required (tree work, arborists, RPFs), MRFSC has verified that the contractor’s license and insurance are current.  Unless otherwise noted, the contractors have indicated they work in all mountain communities.

MRFSC strongly suggests you get an estimate (in writing) from more than one contractor. If you are not able to come to your property to verify the work, we suggest asking for before and after pictures from the contractor. If you have received an abatement notice or citation and have questions about the nature of the abatement work required, contact the agency or entity which issued the notice or citation.  For more info, contact MRFSC toll free (866) 923-3473 or email

Finally, if your experience with one of these contractors is less than satisfactory, please let us know so we may consider revising this list. [Last updated 07-15-2023]
