SCE&G cuts trees with helicopter

Robert Yanity, spokesman for SCE&G, said the helicopter seen hovering over trees near CVS Pharmacy at the corner of Rutland Drive and York Street on Tuesday was cutting trees in a hard to reach area. If crews are not able to get to the trees, sometimes a helicopter will reach the trees for them, Yanity said. The long wire hanging down from the helicopter was a saw used for cutting.
