Provine Helicopter Service was founded in 1985 with a philosophy of providing superior personnel, equipment, training and management. We wanted to go beyond the ordinary. In fact, we wanted to become an integral part of the management team for timber companies and utilities.
We believe that today's Provine Helicopter Service is a superb testament of the power of a good idea. Over the past 30+ years, we have grown from one helicopter and five employees to six company-owned, turbine-powered Bell helicopters, 25 ground-support vehicles, and 28 employees. Since 1985 we have treated in excess of 7.6 million acres of forests in addition to our utility right-of-way contracts.
Provine now services clients in 15 states including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. However, we are not limited to these areas and we have the interest and capabilities to expand to other geographic areas.
