Arbor computer systems was started in 1982 to provide
a business solution for tree service companies. The
program was developed by Peter J. Hannan, an arborist.
Mr. Hannan started a tree company in 1963 that had the good
fortune to increase volume every year at a very rapid
pace. In 1978 to continue this growth and to control it,
it was necessary to automate the company. After much
research and tens of thousands of dollars worth of software it
became apparent that the tree industry was too small a niche
to attract software companies to write effective software
applications. It took several years to learn how to
program with lots of trial and error. After using
the software to run his own company and in an effort to
regain some of the time and money spent, the product was
offered for sale. The program was instantly well
received as it met the needs of a specific industry.
Arbor computer systems is now the largest provider of this
software for tree care companies. We have installations in
twenty five states and Canada.
We believe a good deal of this success is because we listen
to our customer.
