Very good for what I've used it for, brushing up on tree identification. Has a comprehensive list of species in my area (Shenandoah Valley of Virginia), it's a great resource for me to have in the mountains and forests here to quickly identify species and lookalikes.
Nice list of trees in my area, with good photos. But not useful as a field guide because you have to know the name of the tree to look it up.
This is an awesome app. It may take a while to download all of the datasheets, but its worth it if you find yourself without service. The only suggestion I have is that the user should have the option of turnning the "area" off. There have been trees and shrubs that I know are in my area, but the app states there are "0 trees in your area". Just my two cents worth.
great app could be better tho.... living in california ive noticed the app just has the most common trees an srubs.. theres quite a bit of trees the app is missing like the silk oak an scrub oak for example....
Succinct descriptions and clear photos. "Decision tree" structure enables you to narrow species by location, appearance, etc. Best if you can download the databases to your phone. Otherwise, you may be dependent on a non-existent cell signal out in the woods.
I sooo love irony. A "Tree" app with "Bug" fixes! Gotta love it! Maybe it should be called Tree Pesticide Database. Hee hee!
