Trees are a beautiful and vital part of Michigan’s landscape. They’re also the leading cause of power outages and can pose a serious public safety hazard if they grow too near or into power lines.
That's why DTE Energy has a tree trimming program to promote healthy trees and keep the power flowing. Please see the attached map for the planned trimming program in Genoa Township.
Here’s what you can expect once the trimming begins:
• You may see DTE representatives in your yard or neighborhood inspecting the power lines and trees to determine where trimming is needed. Representatives will be wearing high-visibility vests and carrying DTE ID badges.
• If tree work is needed on your property, the representative will knock on your door. If you are not home, we will leave a “Tree Work Scheduled” door card. If you have questions about the work intended for your property, please call the number on the door card. You will have the opportunity to speak to a representative before tree work begins.
• If a tree poses a serious hazard to power lines or if trimming will put the tree’s health at risk, we may need to remove it. In this case, representatives will leave behind additional information and make considerable attempts to work directly with the property owner before removing any trees.
