good work
 It’s nice when a guide works as advertised.   Picking up a leaf on a recent walk and using leaf shape to determine it was a “lobed simple leaf” helped narrow the choices.  It wasn’t long before I found it – Sweetgum.  I was amazed at the depth of information found in the description.   An excellent resource.  Thanks.

Invaluable for urban botanists
This app should really be titled Audubon Woody Plants. It covers trees, shrubs, even lianas (woody vines). I am an avid gardener, and I especially like having the app in my pocket when I am walking around the neighborhood, examining the landscaping around other houses. If I see a shrub I really like I can ID it (like the magnificent Scotch broom I finally identified the other day). The app could use a few more pictures and some of the range maps are missing. But all in all, it is a great app to have in my pocket. Well worth the $10.

Disappointing
This app, to its best, is an unfinished product. The claimed features (e.g., range info and leaf image) for many of the items are not there. The photo images of trees appear to be randomly included; no systematic organization. The majority of the items has only one image and many of them are not helpful for visual identification of the indexed plant. Some of the common trees are not there. The current version is doing Audubon a disservice! I'm very disappointed at the $10 app.

Great app
Green Mountain Digital has a great interface for their apps. Very easy to find things, and I'm no expert on trees or flowers. So nice to have a consistent interface across the various guides so I don't have to guess how to navigate when I'm identifying the tree that the bird is sitting in while I'm sitting in a field of flowers watching the squirrels! Buy all these apps - they will really enhance your experience of nature!

Not as great as I first though (Updated / Disgusted)
This is the third $10 garden (tree) app I have bought recently and have really been looking forward to this one. At first I loved the familiarity of Audubon and the habitat and regional groupings. However, I was really disappointed there is no botanical name search. Also the leaf type, fruit, etc. search is detailed, but there are no images of what those leaf types are other than tiny thumbnails you can't discern, and that is only on the quick search. On the advanced search there is no direction and that is where you need it most. Once in the plant profiles it is lacking as well. This app a big let down if you have the book. It generally covers most of North America, however not in detail, and since it lacks botanical names and has less photos than the book you can't ID unless you are a trained professional and then not specifically since it lacks botanical info. It is definitely not designed for picking out plants. This app also has 400 less plants and over 3000 less photos than my other $10 tree app. Both are missing things which should be expected, but I have to admit I was hoping for more from this one. (UPDATE) I actually bought this app on the recommendation of the Botany Buddy app. They promoted this and the WIldflower one on Twitter. I went back to their page this weekend to thank them for the recommendation. Once there I saw a scathing review of them with a blatant plug of this app. I clicked on the reviewers name and noticed they had reviewed all the Audubon apps the same and virtually nothing else. I found the same of other reivews here as well. I also googled ther reviewer's name and found them bragging on twitter about developing this app and trashing other apps like iBird @cfriii. Not only does the app fall short Audubon's standards, Green Mountain obviously lacks their ethics as well. I'll leave my app rating the same, but I wish they had one for ethics...DISGUSTED.

Not bad...
OK, maybe it isn't perfect....but still a very useful app. I bought it yesterday and immediately went out and explored a new part of the forest. This field guide proved very helpful by identifying a number of trees that I hadn't been sure of. Thanks Green Mountain.
