Virginia Tech Tree ID


Virginia Tech Tree Identification brings the award winning Virginia Tech digital dendrology material to your Android smart phone. It contains fact sheets for 969 woody plants from all over North America with an in depth description, range map and thousands of color images of leaves, flowers, fruit, twigs, bark and form.
Users can narrow the species list for any location in North America using the phone's GPS, network signal or any entered address or zip code. Basically the application can become “Woody Plants of Where You Are Standing”. For example, it can become the “Woody Plants of Southwestern Oregon” , the “Woody Plants of Central Park” or the or “The Woody Plants of 37.108 lat., -80.452 long., elevation 2118”.
Users can further narrow the species list by answering a series of very simple tree attribute questions such as where the plant is growing, leaf shape, leaf arrangement, flower color or fruit type.
The species list can also be narrowed by typing a keyword such as oak, Abies, red or palm. For example if oak is typed only oaks found in the defined area will be listed.
A feature also allows you to send any tree related question to “Dr. Dendro”, a tree expert in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech. You can send a tree description or pictures of your plant and experts will help with identification.

Great Database of pictures and good key, just a few "bugs" works great except on my android 2.3.4 when the phone sensor changes from upright to sideways, the program jumps back to the start page? And then if you don't have a gps fix, the program keeps asking me for the coordinates on every search instead of remembering the last gps coordinate.

Overall Great App♥ Narrowed down a park/nature trail in my community and all of the trees /bushes down to a T. Although I wish i could take a photo and have it analyzed that way, my search was not as difficult as i expected. Best leaf/tree identifier out here. Good work VT!!
