DTE TREE TRIMMING
DTE Energy will be performing tree trimming in 2019 in our community to help improve electric reliability.  Click on the links below to read about the main areas they are expected to be worked in.  During the tree trimming process, DTE will reach out to their customers.

Initially, customers will receive a phone call and letter from DTE explaining they will be in the area.  The first step is to plan the work.  If the costumer is not at home when their property is being evaluated ("planning the work"), DTE will leave a door hanger with contact information for the property owner.  Additional information may be found on DTE's website at www.dteenergy.com/treecare.
