POWER GRID WILDFIRE REMEDIATION Davey Canada crews proudly helped keep power flowing safely in the electric transmission grid after wildfires this summer burned countless trees, creating debris hazards that threatened grid infrastructure. More than 5,700 wildfires have burned throughout the Great White North this wildfire season and are responsible for burning more than 13.7 million hectares (33.9 million acres). Smoke from the fires blanketed huge swaths of the U.S. and Canada this summer. Turn to pages 6 and 7 to learn about how Davey Canada crews helped the recovery in the wake of several wildfires. TORNADOS TOPPLE TREES Severe weather wreaked havoc on parts of the U.S. spanning from Colorado to Ohio. Nearly every Residential/Commercial services office in the Denver area responded after an EF-1 tornado swept through Highlands Ranch, where employees in the South Denver office actually witnessed the funnel cloud! Turn to page 8 to read about it. An even stronger EF-2 tornado ripped through neighborhoods and a golf course in the Toledo area, where crews spent six weeks cleaning up the damage to help their community recover. Turn to page 9 to learn more. RESEARCH, FOUNDATIONS SPROUT AT SEED CAMPUS Research programs are in full swing at the Davey SEED (Science, Employee Education and Development) Campus, where scientists from the Davey Institute are studying many aspects of the landscape. More than 500 trees have been planted for research purposes, and turfgrass, pollinator habitat and insect studies are all under way. Learn about research at the SEED Campus on page 17. Construction for the new training center and offices, as well as roads, ponds and other infrastructure, is moving at a fast pace at the SEED Campus as well. Foundations for the main building are being poured and taking shape this summer and fall. Turn to page 16 to see the progress. KUDOS FOR 'FATHER JOHN' The Bulletin continues our remembrance of our founder John Davey in this issue, commemorating 100 years since his death in 1923, with a short list of some of the many ways John earned posthumous rec- ognition for developing his ingenious concept of tree surgery. Turn to the back page of this issue to learn just a few of the ways John was recognized for his work by organizations throughout North America. Matt Fredmonsky ROOT OF THE ISSUE
