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.  Where licenses are required (tree work, arborists), MRFSC has verified that the contractor’s license is current.  All of these contractors serve all of the communities between the Crestline area (including Waterman Canyon and Cedarpines Park) and Snow Valley (including Green Valley Lake), regardless of where the contractor is based. [Note - we have added a list of Abatement Contractors for the Big Bear area below]

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 07-25-2019]

Abatement Contractors for Big Bear Area

Please note: this is NOT a recommendation list. Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council has no experience with any of these contractors. It is merely providing a list for your reference only. We strongly suggest researching the companies (via Yelp, Home Advisor, etc.) to learn more about their work and performance. We also strongly suggest getting more than one bid (if possible) and, if you are out of the area, requiring before & after photos prior to payment. If you have an abatement notice, compare the pictures before paying.
