    About this project

    Invasive diseases and pests threaten the health of forests in the United States. Scientists are working to understand what allows some individual trees to survive, but they need to find healthy, resilient trees in the forest to study.

     

    That’s where concerned foresters, landowners, and citizens (you!) can help. Tag trees you find in your community, on your property, or out in the wild using TreeSnap! You can submit data via the TreeSnap mobile apps for Android and iOS. TreeSnap is easy to use. Just snap a photo, answer a few questions and be done in a couple of taps.

     

    TreeSnap was developed as a collaboration between Scientists at the University of Kentucky and the University of Tennessee. They will use the data you collect to locate trees for research projects like studying the genetic diversity of tree species and building better tree breeding programs.
