Report a Tree Problem

We are committed to providing safe, reliable power service to our customers. Trimming trees and brush helps us do that. Keeping our power lines and equipment clear is necessary for the safety of our crews, communities and infrastructure – and to keep your lights on.

If you have a questionable tree on your property that is near power lines, please complete the form below. Our forestry team will inspect the trees to determine what work is needed and either speak to your directly or leave a door hanger with our assessment.

We only trim or remove trees that are growing too close to power lines that run power pole to pole. We don't trim trees that are threatening your service drop (the line that runs from our pole to your house). That is the responsibility of the property owner. For your safety, call 800.311.4634 two business days before you plan to work and we will send a crew to disconnect the service line.

Learn more about our comprehensive Forestry program, including FAQs, to manage trees and brush that grow around power lines.

You should never attempt to trim or remove trees near power lines. Serious injury or even death can occur. Working on trees near power lines should only be attempted by trained professionals.

Have a tree problem? Let’s start here.

First, let’s confirm the tree interference (in relation to the residence).

Indiana Michigan Power does not trim trees that are threatening to interfere with your service drop (the line that runs from our pole to your house). You are responsible for trees close to your service drop. When you are ready to trim the tree, give us two days' notice and we'll safely disconnect the service drop for you.

Next, provide your contact information.
