This authoritative and easy-to-use guide features 708 types of trees found in North America, with nearly 4,000+ photographs, text descriptions to help identify tree species, and robust search functions to aid in species identification. 

Utilizing the latest iOS technologies, you can: 
• Search by name (common and scientific) using either keyboard or verbal search systems; type or speak all or part of a mushroom’s name to search for its detailed account. 
• Organize species alphabetically or taxonomically. 
• Search by region, leaf or needle shape and arrangement, bark type, color, flower and fruit type, color—or any combination. 
• Touch to open any or all of the text sections and to enlarge photos to aide with identification in the field. 
• Take notes and upload photos to keep a digital journal of your observations and share them with family, friends, and our growing online community. 
Each species account contains: 
• description with identification details 
• habitat description 
• range information 
• discussion about the species’ history, habitat, flower, leaf types, fruit and other notable characteristics 
• taxonomic Order information 
• photos of similar species with links to those species’ accounts 
• links to additional information for every species

Good resource if you know what you’re looking for.

I’m going to have to learn descriptive words for trees in order to better use this ap. Seems very comprehensive, but the advanced search is not as friendly for the common person; geared towards people who know specifics of tree anatomy.

Needs an Introduction and Gloassary

Most field guides have an introduction and a glossary of terms. This app has neither. If you don’t need those then this app will work for you. But it is definitely not useful for a beginner. Also the list of similar species in the app is not very good. Only shows 3 “similar” species but not necessarily the similar species actually listed in the descriptions. App needs work but it is a promising start. Hoping it keeps improving with updated versions to correct its shortcomings.

No Sassafras

Not very complete if doesn’t include sassafras!
