Consumers Energy Power Lines

News Release Date
Back to News

Consumers Energy may need to trim or remove trees, so they don't interfere with the powerlines that serve you. If the planner determines that work is necessary on your property, Consumers wants to let you know what to expect.

  • Your local planner will attempt to contact you in person, by phone, mail or with a door hanger.
  • Trees that need trimmed will be marked with a blue dot. Trees marked with a blue X will need to be removed. Smaller brus will also be cleared but not always marked. 
  • In lawn areas, small branches will be chipped and removed from your property. Larger branches and wood will be cut into manageable sections and left on your property.
  • In other areas, branches and wood will be piled along the edges right-of-way.
  • Trees outside our right-of-way and on your property may be marked for removal with a blue A.
  • Lastly, remaining stumps maybe treated to prevent regrowth.
