Davey partners with greehill

Davey Resource Group (DRG), a subsidiary of The Davey Tree Expert Co. — No. 2 on the 2023 LM150 rankings — partners with Singapore-based business intelligence company greehill.

Greehill develops 3D digital twins and automated analyses of urban trees through a combination of high-resolution cameras, mobile laser scanning (MLS), terrestrial laser scanning (TLS), satellite imagery and proprietary machine learning algorithms. The solution reduces the time and costs associated with a city-wide tree inventory, making accurate insights accessible to cities of all sizes.
