Did you know that tree trimming is the fastest way to improve power reliability? That’s why DTE has dispatched tree trimming crews to Detroit’s Grandmont neighborhood. Our team scaled multiple trees, near Lyndon and Archdale Streets, removing overgrown branches that could have caused electrical issues during extreme weather. 

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.  

Highlights include:       

  • 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.
