- Beautiful high-resolution images of leaves, flowers, fruits, needles, cones, petioles, seeds and bark
- Helpful text on every species
- Collect, label and map the trees you identify

Doesn't work

It keeps telling me the white background I'm using isn't white so I get no identification. I can't get any whiter than copy paper and an index card so I'm deleting it.
