TreeGuard Assurance

DTE's new TreeGuard Assurance program gives you peace of mind for $9.99 per month or just 32¢ a day.

What is TreeGuard Assurance?

For a low monthly fee of $9.99 a month or just 32¢ a day, you are protected against costly tree clean up and trimming expenses if a tree or branch falls on the service line - the power line between the electric pole and your home – and causes a power outage.

If a tree-related power outage affects the service line, contact us to file a claim and we’ll send a certified tree trim crew out to:

  • Safely cut and remove all tree debris associated with the service line outage
  • Help prevent future outages by trimming back tree interference within a five-foot radius of the service line

Wind and weather can cause damage to trees that may affect your power and leave destruction in their wake. Don’t tackle the mess on your own or waste time searching for an available tree trim company. When you’re enrolled in TreeGuard Assurance, you know that certified crews will be there to take care of it.

TreeGuard Assurance is an elective program covering tree-related power outages that impact the service line. Tree trimming near service lines is the responsibility of the customer. Because service lines are energized, we recommend using a professional tree trimming service to perform the work.

TreeGuard is in addition to DTE’s ongoing Tree Trimming Program that works near the main power lines to improve reliability for customers. Our trimming methods help prevent tree-related outages while promoting healthy trees and safe, reliable power.
