From Trees to Budding Seeds

Our power plants, natural gas pipelines and electric wires stretch across thousands of acres in the Lower Peninsula. As one of the state’s largest private landowners, we take our responsibility to care for our lands seriously. Our professional foresters work to balance the economic, cultural and ecological needs of our forest lands while working to provide reliable power and natural gas to our 1.6 million customers.

Sometimes Even Mother Nature Needs a Hand

Our active involvement in land preservation dates back to the early 20th century. We hired teams of tree planters to help reforest the watersheds around dams that had been ravaged by fires and excessive logging. We’ve planted more than two million trees along the Au Sable, Manistee and Muskegon Rivers and support tree planting efforts statewide.

Our land conservation efforts extend beyond trees. We’ve also planted more than 125 acres of pollinator habitats  along our natural gas lines to help bees and butterflies flourish. Our plantings also support our erosion control efforts and help protect our wetlands.


Sharing our Lands with You

We’re happy to share our lands with those who enjoy the great outdoors. We invite you to get closer to nature at many of the public lands around our hydro facilities.

Whether you like to walk, camp, bike or canoe, our public lands are yours to enjoy. We work with governments, volunteer organizations and private business to manage our public-access lands.
