Our tree trimmers were out in multiple Southfield neighborhoods this week clearing out fallen branches and other debris from around our power lines to improve reliability. We’ll be performing this work throughout neighborhoods in Southfield through the coming weeks as part of our commitment to improving safety and reliability.  

Here they are performing work. Notice the before and after shots, where you can see the branches they removed that were sticking in between the power lines. 

You may see more of our crews in the coming months as part of our accelerated electric reliability projects in your area, including more tree trimming and infrastructure updates. All these projects are underway to improve your service and reliability for the short- and long-term. 

Make sure to regularly check the Southfield community page to learn more about what’s going on in your neighborhood. You can also follow DTE on Facebook and Twitter for even more updates and information.
