In a stunning reversal DTE buries ""Ground to Sky" edict and vows to obtain written permission from property owners before removing trees on private property outside of the Utility easement.

Below is a copy of the letter from DTE  written to  City Manager Jay Cravens  on February 24th 2014.

DTE spokesman, Scott Simon  was quoted in the   Sunday March 8th Eccentric Newspaper  as saying the letter sent to Township supervisor Leo Savoie  was tailored specifically to Bloomfield Township.     

This publication found the letters to be remarkably similar however. In both  letters sent,   DTE promises that the utility will no longer  remove trees outside of it's easement without written permission from the property owner. The letter to Township supervisor Leo Savoie  has been published in the  On line edition of the Oakland Press. As is this blog. There is no charge for the reader to benefit  from either. Both provide  convenient  access links for  the reader   to review  prior stories  and  with a click of the mouse to go behind the scenes  to view documents that contain literally hundreds of pages.  The letter to Leo Savoie is reproduced below.
