Broken links

Very useful to diagnose issues, but none of the treatment links to 3rd party websites work. It would be better if the app had treatment within the app rather than linking to another site they don’t control.

Needs work

The interface is done well but there are too many generic photos and answers. As an arborist this is a valuable tool when managing tree health. Please keep improving because this is the best one yet!

Great app for browsing diseases by species

App is very helpful to narrow down possible known problems for a species and as a reference guide for signs and symptoms. Pictures are great, info is great.
