Arbor Drone is at the cutting edge of aerial urban forestry.

Arbor Drone has successfully completed a first-of-its-kind aerial project to detect and monitor Emerald Ash Borer in Denver, Colorado, USA, with several important, game-changing outcomes.

We expect to scale this project up to provide city- or region-wide services at unprecedented flexibility and resolution. We currently are scheduling fights in urban areas to expand our datasets to find more pests and disease. Arbor Drone is also partnering to develop unique processes and workflows for Utility Vegetation Management.
