Each day, our teams at the Davey Resource Group (DRG) and Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. (WSSI) assist clients with planning and managing their natural areas. From wetland restoration to endangered species consulting, our scientists, foresters and planners work tirelessly to protect our clients’ natural resources. In 2017, DRG and WSSI added several drones to their equipment fleets, providing Davey technicians another tool to help deliver unmatched services. Davey’s certified drone pilots can offer a variety of aerial inspection services to our clients, such as:
- Providing images for inspection of utility rights-of-way clearances
- Imaging for GIS mapping
- Wetland inspection
- Tree canopy control work
Historically, technicians have often relied on lower-quality satellite imagery for many of these applications. The high-resolution cameras on our drones offer improved aerial imagery, as well as videography capabilities. The drones also enable Davey to correct image distortion, providing more detailed, spatially correct topographical sitemaps and taking our mapping services to new heights.
“Our main goal is to continue providing our clients with innovative solutions that meet their needs and exceed the quality they expect.”
