DTE Tree Triming

Dear DTE Customer,

Trees are a beautiful and vital part of Michigan's landscape. They're also the leading cause of power outages and can pose serious public safety hazard if they grow too close or come in contact with power lines. That's why our tree experts will be visiting your area soon to trim and, if necessary, remove trees posing a power reliability or safety threat.

Our tree trimming program follows industry standards and uses trimming methods that promote healthy trees and safe, reliable power. All work will be completed by tree professionals who have been trained on safe, proper, and environmentally responsible work practices. Get a full view of DTE's tree trimming program at

We are committed to working with you throughout this process and will be here to address any concerns you might have before tree work begins. Here is what you can expect in the upcoming weeks:

  • You may see DTE representatives in your yard or neighborhood inspecting 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.
  • 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.
