Tree Removal

The City of Rochester values its urban canopy. Before any regulated tree with a diameter of seven (7") inches or greater is removed from public or private property, the City must be notified and consulted. Contact the City's Deputy City Manager & Professional Forester, Nik Banda, to discuss the removal of any trees at (248) 733-3700, or email him directly.

DTE Energy will be preforming tree trimming during 2020 to help improve electric reliability in the community. Any customers on these circuit(s) will receive a phone call along with a letter explaining that we will be in the area. The DTE planners will be out in the field beginning Tuesday, July 7 (weather permitting) to plan the work. If the customer is not at home when they are evaluating their property they will leave a door hanger with contact information for the property owner. All DTE employees will be wearing high-visibility vests and carrying ID badges.
