If you have trees on your property that grow near power lines, pay close attention to this developing story…
Faced with the threat of an emergency injunction, DTE Energy has agreed to temporarily stop an aggressive tree-trimming program in the Bloomfield area.
“We voluntarily agreed to put the work on hold,” DTE spokesman Scott Simons said Wednesday. “We will be meeting Friday with Bloomfield Hills City Manager Jay Cravens and Bloomfield Township Supervisor Leo Savoie to continue building on a series of meeting we’ve had with both communities.”
Following a directive from the Michigan Public Service Commission, DTE Energy and Consumers Energy are implementing an aggressive tree trimming program to help alleviate future power outages.
