Description

There is no lack of good manuals of botany in this country. There still seems place for an adequately illustrated book of convenient size for field use. The larger manuals, moreover, cover extensive regions and sometimes fail by reason of their universality to give a definite idea of plants as they grow within more limited areas. New England marks a meeting place of the Canadian and Alleghanian floras. Many southern plants, long after they have abandoned more elevated situations northward, continue to advance up the valleys of the Connecticut and Merrimac rivers, in which they ultimately disappear entirely or else reappear in the valley of the St. Lawrence; while many northern plants pushing southward maintain a more or less precarious existence upon the mountain summits or in the cold swamps of New England, and sometimes follow along the mountain ridges to the middle or southern states. In addition to these two floras, some southwestern and western species have invaded Vermont along the Champlain valley, and thrown out pickets still farther eastward.

At or near the limit of a species, the size and habit of plants undergo great change; in the case of trees, to which this book is restricted, often very noticeable. There is no fixed, absolute dividing line between trees and shrubs. In accordance with the usual definition, a tree must have a single trunk, unbranched at or near the base, and must be at least fifteen feet in height.

Trees that are native in New England, or native in other sections of the United States and thoroughly established in New England, are described and, for the most part, figured. Foreign trees, though locally established, are not figured. Trees may be occasionally spontaneous over a large area without really forming a constituent part of the flora. Even the apple and pear, when originating spontaneously and growing without cultivation, quickly become degenerate and show little tendency to possess themselves of the soil at the expense of the native growths. Gleditsia, for example, while clearly locally established, has with some hesitation been accorded pictorial representation.

Bogus

:
Unless you're a dendrologist, this is a pretty lame app. It's really just a ported book thay you have to scroll thru chapter by chapter. It doesn't even contain a single photo of a tree, leaf, flower, bark, etc. The sparse drawings are crowded and crude, and don't even show the whole tree. THERE IS NO SEARCH FUNCTION???!!!! There are just multiple chapters based on the FAMILIES of trees, and then just endless scrolling to try to find a useful tidbit. There is no Index, and there is no way to jump to a particular tree. If you don't know the family a tree is in, say, like the Persimmon is in the Ebony Family, good luck trying to find it. And the tree ID key is hopelessly clunky. This "App" needs major work before it can be considered a useful addition to the iPhone.

2/5 stars

This is just a book

:
Currently this is the only tree reference app for the iPhone with enough information to be adequate for the dendrologist, amateur or otherwise. So if you want tree reference material then this is your only choice.

However, you should know before you buy it that it's only the text of a book that's been copied onto the iPhone and bundled into an application icon. The information is extensive, but don't expect a navigable database or any search functions. The only app-like touch that differentiates it from the original book (of the same name) is that the table of contents is linked to the chapter headings. There are no other links, and no fields to select or enter anything other than personal notes. It's also a little slow, but it never crashes and there are no bugs that I can detect.

That said, I happened to be one of those iPhone-toting dendrology types whose been waiting for something, anything, to provide tree info on the iPhone. So I gladly plunked down my $7.99 and have no regrets. When competition finally develops in this category, though, I'm pretty sure this app will be instantly obsolete.

UPDATE on 8/1/09: A real tree id app has finally arrived on the scene!
