Easy to use and accurate if you get the tree description right. Good info about the trees including photos, facts. 4/5 since for me on Android 13, feature to take picture when logging a tree doesn't work - appears to take pic but then it never appears. Workaround is to take it directly using camera app, then tree app can find it in gallery of your photos.

Great concept - tree identification in your pocket - and that part works fine. The problem is, some other key parts don't. There is a feature where you can add your own photos and notes including the photo location. Unfortunately this feature causes the application to crash. Frequently. Therefore what you have is a handy identification guide but minus any ability to add custom photos, which is big pity.

The descriptions are detailed, without jargon, and photos are good. However, I wanted to use the app to map my local trees, which doesn't work. For starters, the location defaults to Grantham, Lincolnshire (perhaps the programmer's home?). If you then press the Find Location button it finds your location within about half a mile. Saving the tree location is similarly inaccurate. The iPhone version doesn't seem to have this problem!
