GBM Tree Manager

  • Streamline inspections and tree maintenance
  • Manage risk and reduce costs

Overview

Over many years helping organisations manage field data for their tree assets, Global GBM recognised that a management tool was needed that better met industry requirements for auditable processes around maintenance and risk mitigation – we built GBM Tree Manager.

GBM Tree Manager supports the day-to-day operations of arborists and work crews responsible for managing the urban forest.

This is an integrated solution with a map enabled management console that communicates wirelessly and seamlessly with field devices. An intuitive user interface presents data using linked grid and map displays that unleash the power of combined database and spatial querying.

Field users are provided with sophisticated maps and data forms that guarantee rapid, accurate data collection and closure.

GBM Tree Manager leads the way in urban forest management with the incorporation of i-Tree tools. Users are able to quantify the structure of community trees and the environmental services that those trees provide.

The benefits of proactive risk management are maximised – scheduled inspection, maintenance and auditing minimise the risk of property damage or personal injury. Wireless dispatch provided through the scheduling dashboard will significantly improve operator efficiency and reduce costs.

GBM Tree Manager is your total tree management solution. Contact the team at Global GBM to discuss implementation in your organization.
