FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — BEDFORD HILLS, NY — (Marketwire – July 30, 2013) – –The Consulting Group at SavATree has embraced new technologies to provide high quality, actionable tree intelligence for its customers.

Working with the University of Vermont Spatial Analysis Lab, the Consulting Group at SavATree is leveraging cutting edge satellite technology to provide a birds-eye view of tree canopies. This new technology includes “heat maps” that allow the Consulting Group to pinpoint high heat areas and manage tree canopy accordingly. Cross matched with demographic data, these heat maps allow clients to plan for additional shade in areas with high populations of elderly or infants.

Another application for satellite technology is determining forest density. Density maps are useful for quickly identifying pockets of trees and determining areas for growth using forest patch analysis.

This new technology has proven extremely useful for clients in a number of disciplines including municipal foresters, planners, landscape architects and property managers. These groups must be prepared to solve tree maintenance issues and make informed planning decisions based on hard data. The satellite technologies being employed by the Consulting Group at SavATree give these clients the tools necessary to more efficiently plan for the future
