When heavy branches hang over a house, the risk of falling limbs causing extensive damage is very real. Damaged or dead trees are unsightly and potentially hazardous during a storm with high winds. When it comes to dealing with this kind of tree care, some jobs are too big and too dangerous and need professional expertise to step in to help.
If you are an arborist, or own a tree trimming business your tasks are varied and busy—removing trees that are dead or blocking areas, trimming and reshaping to improve appearance and health of the plant, operating chipping and shredding equipment. And your work is very seasonal. GigaBook.com has the perfect set of online software tools to assist you in staying organized and working efficiently. The integrated calendar and to-do list keeps track of important deadlines, provides automated reminders and is accessible anywhere.
Since most of your time is spent working outside and traveling from job to job, GigaBook’s online scheduling software will be a tremendous asset to you when you’re not able to take phone calls.
