We use combinatorics of quivers and the corresponding surfaces to study maximal green sequences of minimal length for quivers of type A. We prove that such sequences have length n+ t, where n is the number of vertices and t is the number of 3-cycles in the quiver. Moreover, we develop a procedure that yields these minimal length maximal green sequences.
