MB&G has been at the forefront providing hazard tree assessments, erosion and sediment control oversight, and environmental compliance throughout fire corridors to assist with post-wildfire events.
MB&G is experienced in post-fire tree assessments, including those seeking FEMA reimbursement, and can provide experienced ISA Certified Arborists®, ISA TRAQ Certified Arborists to complete projects in a timely manner. Our hazard tree assessments include tree inventories, tree risk assessments, and preparing reports findings.
Certified Erosion & Sediment Control Leads (CESCLs) ensure compliance, and MB&G CESCLs meet all certification requirements to support federal and state stormwater, sediment, and erosional control standards. Our staff perform site inspections, long-term monitoring, and prescribe erosion control measures.
Our environmental compliance specialists identify sensitive and regulated resources and provide potential solutions. Our staff work in major transportation corridors impacted by wildfires and assess and note sensitive habitat features near waterways, wetlands, and/or those regulated by federal state, and local environmental laws.
MB&G works to provide preventative measures to mitigate future wildfire catastrophes.
We provide forest health and fuels management expertise, including identifying fuel breaks, designing treatments to treat ladder fuels and reduce density, and oversight and management of tree removal. Project work includes work for local government, RCD’s, PG&E, utilities, nonprofits, federal landowners, and private landowners.
“MB&G exceeded expectations and did a fantastic job on a very complicated statewide post-fire hazard tree removal project.”
“I want to thank the entire MB&G team for their outstanding work and the many long hours they put in to make Oregon’s recovery from the 2020 wildfires so successful. Everyone from Principals to field monitors worked hard in fast-paced and stressful conditions to make this project a success.”
“The MB&G staff I interacted with regularly on the ODOT Hazard Wildfire Recovery effort were excellent. They understood the workload and expectations of this unprecedented undertaking and rose to the challenge.”
