Identify almost any tree in North America in just a few taps.

TreeID was created in MEDL Mobile's App Incubator. The idea was submitted by Jason Siniscalchi, a PhD in Forest Resource Science from Connecticut who had done his graduate studies work at West Virginia University in Forest Management. He wanted a way to share his research and interest in tree identification with the world for all nature enthusiasts.

Reached #12 in Canada!

This app will also be helpful for allergy sufferers who can now easily identify the plants they are allergic to.

Identify Almost Any Tree in Northern America

• Name
• Scientific name
• Physical Attributes (bark, leaf and fruit)
• Geographic location

Forest Science Made Easy

Because many of us using the app may not know the proper name for identifying particular types of leaves or fruit, the app will walk the user through the various methods of tree identification.

The app contains thousands of images, illustrations and notations. Yet with only a few taps, the user should be able to identify any tree in the forest!

Newest Features

• Improved tree identification functionality
• More than a hundred new trees
• Fifty "Fall Foliage" trees with Autumn colors

Please Read This Before Updating

TreeID has an extensive database of trees built right into the app. This way, it's available to you at all times so you don't have to worry about having no reception while trying to identify a tree. Since our tree database is so large, this update does take a little bit of time to download. We recommend that you start your update while accessing a reliable internet connection, and make sure that you have roughly an hour of free time to stay connected before starting your download.

We are proud to call TreeID a Shiny MEDL Object.
