Davey Cape Cod tree services crewmember Reis LeBeau shows off the remote-controlled drone he rescued from a tree.

A New Aerial Challenge for Davey's Cape Cod Tree Services

January 13, 2015

Davey’s Cape Cod tree service crew received two unusual requests late last year.

Read more below—and tomorrow's post as well—to find out how office personnel and crewmembers handled each unique call.

Rescuing cats and birds from trees is all in a day’s work at Davey, but the crash landing of a remote-controlled aerial drone called for one climber to elevate his game.

Trimmer Trainee Reis LeBeau recently found himself scaling a tree to retrieve the drone after its pilot accidentally crashed it in the leafy crown.

Davey’s Cape Cod tree services Client Experience Coordinator Carol Booth says the drone crashed in a tree on the property of a client who just happened to be preparing for a backyard wedding the next day. The wedding party was out on a yacht cruising Massachusett’s Quisset Harbor when they decided to give the ship’s captain an impromptu flight lesson—one that ended with LeBeau’s own aerial acrobatics.

“It worked out well because we just happened to be in the neighborhood, so we just sent them over and Reis climbed the tree and brought it down,” Booth says. “That was a strange one.”
