This free app is a great resource for beginners looking to learn how to identify trees. You take a picture of a leaf, and the app tells you the tree. We’ve tested it a few times and found it to be surprisingly accurate.
This is a resource for someone with advanced knowledge in identifying trees. The key asks you sometimes-technical questions like “Is a leaf singly or pinnately compound?” and uses your answers to identify the tree.
Sometimes you won't be able to identify a tree or plant on the spot. Other times you may want to keep a leaf or flower to appreciate later. A plant press preserves leaves, twigs, flowers and buds so you can look at them whenever you want.
Which plants on your woodlot most catch your eye? Create a list and take pictures of the flowers, bushes, or trees you enjoy the most. You can encourage, showcase, and add more of these plants over time.
