A SEASON FOR GIVING THANKS It's the holiday season, and the end of the year offers us an opportunity to slow down, spend time with friends and family and reflect on all we are thankful for this year. And there is much to be thankful for. Take a moment and ponder the question, what are you thankful for? We posed that question to Davey Chairman, President and CEO Pat Covey, who shares his thoughts on gratitude for this year on page 4. HOLIDAY GREETINGS Davey retiree George Gaumer sends us his family's warm holiday greetings, which we shared via the cover photo of this issue of the Bulletin. Gaumer was on a hike with his wife and friends following a fresh snowfall when he spotted this lone pine tree. "There were many spectacular scenes that morning, but this young pine really caught my eye," Gaumer said. "It seemed to display perfect form and symmetry. The lighting and shadows were just right. We decided it will be our 2022 Christmas card photo but we are happy to share it with fellow Davey tree lovers." Thank you, George, for helping us get in the holiday spirit by giving us a peek at your Christmas card! STORM SEASON 'Tis the season, and not just for the holidays. This fall during the Atlantic hurricane season, Davey crews responded to several severe storms on the East Coast. Our storm response started with Hurricane Ian, which struck Florida as a category 4 storm in late September. Over 400 Davey employees from all four service lines traveled to support hundreds of Davey crews already helping clients brace for the storm. Turn to page 8 to read about how we rallied together to help Floridians recover from Ian's devastation. Just a few weeks later, Hurricane Fiona struck Nova Scotia as a post- tropical cyclone. Halifax bore the brunt of the storm, which knocked out power to thousands. Crews from The Davey Tree Expert Company of Canada, Ltd., spent several weeks helping to restore power and clean up debris. Turn to page 7 to read about Davey Canada's response to Fiona. And in early November, hundreds of employees again hit the road for Florida when Hurricane Nicole struck as a category 1 storm. That response was under way as we were wrapping up this issue of the Bulletin, so stay tuned for coverage of Nicole. Matt Fredmonsky ROOT OF THE ISSUE
