New version fails to fit to screen Using a Samsung galaxy S2 and the updated app does not correctly size to fit on the screen. Using the identification guide half the text and pictures are off one edge of the screen and can't be seen. I can't scroll either to see the part that is off screen. Fix this and it would be four or five stars but currently not much use.
Saw a potentially infected tree, used the app Did a circuit of a small wood and unfortunately I think we might have diseased tree or two. Used the app, straight forward, prompts each step. Recieved an automated reply. The result will be know ASAP
:-) Shame this app is necessary. But a few more pics would be great too.
Simple and does the job A bit rough around the edged but does the job and at last makes a smartphone smart.
four stars simple easy. How fast it spreads in one season would be good.
Good images Good images for identification and great use of an app to get the public involved. Please follow up with good marketing...I heard about it on Channel 4 news.
All new: The app has been fully revised and updated.
This is the first release of New England Tree Identification just in time for spring. This is a very basic, yet extremely functional app to help any person with any experience level identify the trees around them. This app is a graphical key to help identify trees with the help of a simple sentence to explain each graphic. The entire app is written in lamens terms, no scientific technical jargon here. This app includes 100+ trees, both deciduous and coniferous, that grow all throughout the New England states of the US. The app is built with size in mind so that it will not take up a lot of space on your device and takes little to no resources from your phone with no background operations. There are no useless features that get in the way and confuse the user just simple pure tree identification. There will be many updates to come that will include more layout options for more screen varieties, search functions, and more tree types. If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to email us.
This app was developed to support features on our website, MyTreeTracker.org. MyTreeTracker.org helps Earthwatch staff and volunteers to collect data that will contribute to local environmental management plans and scientific research. Volunteers collect information on tree species identification, location, diameter at breast height, condition, and other characteristics that helps determine the overall benefit of the city’s urban forest.

We had an issue with our API and some data could not be retrieved. Unfortunately this meant the whole application broke. The latest release should have this fixed!
