Tree Identification Guides on the Internet

Post  Leo Schordje on Tue May 22, 2012 8:26 am

The question has been asked in several different threads where are the tree identification guides.

Here are a couple that I occasionally use, feel free to comment on them and post your own preferred guide links.

The USDA Plants Database, in the menus there are guides, image galleries, and identification keys. There are many resources here;
http://plants.usda.gov/java/

Virginia Tech - VT Tree ID
http://dendro.cnre.vt.edu/dendrology/factsheets.cfm

for Midwest USA the UW - Wisflora is more a check list and image link than a identification key.

Tree Image collection at Univ. of Wisconsin

Herbarium University of Wisconsin - http://wisplants.uwsp.edu/WisPlants.html

Thanks. Now let us see URLs from Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and OZ. Make this a VERY useful thread.

Trees in the southern USA

I'll start with a University of Florida paper on "How to Identify A Tree."  Follow these instructions and you don't need us.

Tree ID material:

Florida Forest Service - Trees of Florida (also available as a booklet for Fla. residents).
http://flame.fl-dof.com/apps/trees.php

University of Florida - Trees of Florida:

http://www.sfrc.ufl.edu/Extension/florida_forestry_information/forest_resources/trees_of_florida_common_name.html


This one appears to be someone's labor of love.

Hello Kirk! If you would like any assistance toward identifying those half dozen trees we are here to help as we can. A clear photo of the foliage and flowers together which information about the location or venue (i.e. nursery, etc.) from whence the tree came to you will all help greatly.

Yours,
David B.
