BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y., April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Galvin, Director of The Consulting Group at SavATree, will deliver a presentation to the Maryland Construction Network on Tree Management during Construction on Tuesday May 5th. His talk, emphasizing how proper planning helps avoid delays and unanticipated expense, will focus on the major reasons to protect trees during construction, the best approach for saving both trees and money, and special rules for specimen trees. The presentation will also cover thresholds for clearing, afforestation and reforestation and how to avoid mitigation.
An accomplished speaker, researcher and published author, Galvin's 25-year career in arboriculture includes a stint at Maryland's Department of Natural Resources where he spearheaded technical and financial assistance programs for urban forestry. He is a Registered Consulting Arborist, strategic partner for the Sustainable Urban Forests Coalition, president-elect of the American Society of Consulting Arborists, serves on the panel for Chesapeake Bay Program's Urban Tree Canopy Experts and is a recipient of the 2011 True Professionals award from the International Society of Arboriculture.
