Treework Environmental Practice and Tim Moya Associates invest £50,000 in tree management software

Treework Environmental Practice and Tim Moya Associates anticipate more work after a £50,000 investment in developing new software.

Arboriculture firms Treework Environmental Practice and Tim Moya Associates have developed new tree management software in a £50,000 joint venture.

Working with Safe Trees in the Czech Republic they have developed MyTrees, a tree management database and GIS, to help landowners and property managers to pro-actively manage their tree populations.

Treework Environmental Practice managing director Luke Fay told HW he believed MyTrees would be a major factor in the firm winning work.

The companies are offering the software free with tree survey work.

"There is no doubt in my mind this will help us win more business because as a proposal for a local authority or any tree manager most IT systems for managing tree stock are thousands of pounds," he explained.

"But we didn't want a system to compete for sales, so that's why we are offering it free with tree surveys instead. We think it's quite revolutionary."

MyTrees provides clients with a database of trees on their land and integrated Geographical Information System (GIS) mapping to show the location of recorded trees on a digital map.

The system features:

  • MyTrees Works Management supports the management of works orders throughout the process from selecting the works, through tendering for competitive prices, appointing a contractor, adjusting work schedules, on site checking of works, reissuing and signing off of works as well as a database of Approved Contractors.
  • MyTrees Enquiries handles enquiries from the public regarding trees managed by the client.
  • MyTrees Interactive enables online client access to their tree information


Clients already using the system include: Melton Borough Council, Buckinghamshire County Council, The National Trust, Kent County Council, East Herts District Council, Southgate College and Boston Mayflower Housing Association.
