You may have noticed tree trim crews out in Detroit’s Grandmont neighborhood, near Lyndon Street and Southfield Freeway. Our team trimmed overgrown trees away from overhead lines. This work protects your power reliability the next time extreme weather strikes.
All throughout this year, we have increased our tree trimming efforts dramatically across our service territory as part of a $90 million investment to accelerate tree trimming.
- Accelerating tree trimming work for communities hardest hit by storms last fall
- Increasing our tree trim workforce by 30%
- Trimming 5,700 miles of trees near power lines — more than the distance from Detroit to Hawaii — in the last year alone
If trees are creating a safety hazard near your home, please report it to DTE here. We prioritize safety concerns based on the severity of the hazard.
