Nice informative app

Lovely informative app and although sometimes the identification can be off - the information provided about the trees is excellent and you can normally get what you need. What I’d also love in the series of pictures that you get with the trees is a black and white profile - sometimes you can get a lot from a profile of a tree. I make models and although pictures are great it’s nice to understand the branch structure. Enjoy using!

Woodlands Trust British Trees app

I have only had the app installed today and I’ve spent hours already just reading all the amazing facts and learning how to identify different types of trees,and also learning a lot of botanical stuff too!
There’s also a map where you can add different types of trees that you’ve discovered around you and even see other peoples tree discoveries in any area,you can also press onto the map discoveries to learn more about that specific tree!
I mean I’ve never really been very clued up when it comes to trees but this app has made learning about trees so much fun,I absolutely love it and will be using it regularly now,can’t wait to log my first tree identification discovery!
So glad I downloaded this app.
And the best part is that it’s made by the amazing awe inspiring Woodlands Trust,who you can easily make a donation to from the app to help them continue with their amazing work!
I definitely recommend this app honestly and wholeheartedly!

Multiple features to choose from to help identify the tree you are examining... i.e. if you have a leaf and/or a flower from the tree then choose leaf and/or flower as a starting point. From there on in you’re offered a multitude of selections to help further describe the leaf/flower and thus you’re ultimately offered as little as two possible trees at the end of the process (which takes less than a minute).

Brilliantly simple yet immensely powerful app!
