Much like the Great Lakes, trees are a part of Michigan’s natural splendor. Unfortunately, trees are involved in about 40% of all power outages. Trees that are too close to power lines can pose a danger to our workers and to homeowners as well. Trimming and removing select trees from areas surrounding power lines helps us provide safe, reliable electric service to communities throughout Michigan.
