The About My Woods app provides woodland owners in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont (and soon other states) with essential information about their woods and who to contact for professional assistance in managing their woods. One of the unique features of the app is the ability of a landowner to pinpoint a spot on the map – either where they are located or any other spot in the region – and access maps and information specific to that location. Maps include terrain, soils, land cover type, watershed and satellite view, providing users with instant and mobile access to information specific to individual parcels and locations. In addition to maps, the About My Woods app helps find local professionals – including state forestry educators, landowner organizations, Tree Farm committees, and land trusts active in the region. Users are also able to use the app to identify common wildlife, trees, wildflowers, and invasive plants and insects. High-quality photos, coupled with in-depth descriptions, provide the user with an indispensable tool for understanding their woods. Important information and links, FAQs and other sources are also provided.
The app was funded through a grant from the USDA Forest Service and produced by the North East State Foresters Association through Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is crazy helpful. The reference images and descriptions are spot on. Having 5 categories to break up all the Things in My Woods makes it easier to find everything; however, having an overall Search option would be good. It's perfect for a quick search on a cool mushroom or that plant you see everywhere but never know the name of. Love it
Mapping is fantastic
This app is pretty cool - showed me a bunch of stuff about some land I own in New Hampshire, including soils (which I have been looking for, but is way too complicated in other sources). I really like the photos of plants and animals, and can't wait to get out and use it in the woods.
