DTE 2019 Tree Trimming Maintenance Program

DTE Logo

DTE reports trees are the leading cause of power outages. This is why you may see their tree experts in your neighborhood this year to trim and, if necessary, remove trees growing too close to power lines.  Here's what you can expect:

  • You may see a 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, they 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, it may need to be removed.  In this case, representatives will leave behind additional information and make considerable attempts to work directly with the property owner before removing any trees.  

On the DTE maintenance tree trimming map for the City of Bloomfield Hills, the various areas shaded in green show the locations that the DTE crews will be tree trimming throughout 2019.
