Environmental stewardship is more than a trend — it’s here to stay. Our Research, Science & Innovation (RSI) team serves as the premier provider of environmental analysis for utilities looking to improve and expand their sustainable stewardship efforts. Committed to advancing the scientific process, focusing on data-driven greenspace protocols, and building upon sustainable ideals and metrics, our RSI team — led by Dr. Anand Persad — offers a variety of laboratory services, AI solutions, urban forestry diagnostics, climate studies, plant dynamics and rhizosphere analyses, and more.

These programs along with Dr. Anand have been recognized across the industry with multiple awards, including the 2021 International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) L.C. Chadwick Award for Arboricultural Research and the ​​Award of Achievement by the Ohio Chapter of the ISA.
