Upcoming DTE Tree Trimming Activity in Pittsfield Township

Trees are the leading cause of power outages and can pose a serious public safety hazard if they grow too near or into power lines. DTE Energy will be performing tree trimming in 2022 to help improve electric reliability in our community. DTE will begin field analysis work this fall, prior to the scheduled trimming in 2022.

As part of this effort, DTE will reach out to customers in a number of ways before tree trimming begins next year. Initially, customers will receive a phone call and letter explaining that DTE will be in the area. Then DTE will begin to plan the work. If a customer is not at home when DTE is evaluating their property (planning the work), DTE will leave a door hanger with contact information for the property owner. DTE also has information on their website about their tree maintenance program.
