Then this application is just for you. It spotlights 48 of North America’s most prominent trees, including many state trees, several threatened species, and a few whose extraordinary features have made them renowned worldwide. Each screen presents a hand-drawn color illustration of a particular tree, complete with details of its leaves, flowers, or fruit.
