WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Workers at a metro tree service are getting ready to sweep in and help with florida's clean-up effort.

Nearly 200 employees from Wright Tree Service are staged in anticipation of the storm, and that includes crews from Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana.

President and CEO of Wright Tree Service, Will Nutter, said employees will be staged in safe zones before moving in to help once the storm has passed.

"They'll be working with the utility companies, he said. "Any of the lines down or impacted by trees, our company comes in and helps the line construction crews remove the tree debris and enable the line crews to put the lines back up and get everybody back into power."

Wright Tree Services sent around 400 employees to help during Hurricane Sandy along the east coast in 2012.
