Jason Siniscalchi, a PhD in Forest Resource Science from West Virginia University has developed a tree identification application for the iPhone called TreeID. This application may have particular benefit for professionals, volunteers, or stakeholders.
TreeID provides an inexpensive supplement to current resources by providing an easy reference that can be used on the job. TreeID contains over 250 trees (including 100 West Coast trees) across North America and includes a dynamic search key, information on native range, photos and descriptions of leaves, bark, twigs, fruit, and habitat. Additionally, it includes a native range map and tree form silhouettes. It was developed in collaboration with MEDL Mobile, an incubator, developer, aggregator and marketer of mobile applications.
