Easily expand your knowledge about urban trees with Branché.
Branché is a location-based app that uses the City of Montreal's tree database. When you walk by a tree in Montreal, Branché automatically shows its species and other related info. More than 200 000 trees are already listed.
Moreover, Branché helps you identify and geolocalize trees that are not currently listed and automatically shares your identification with other users.
Leave your own message on any listed tree and share why it's a special tree, and help report ash trees that are infected by the Emerald Ash Borer.
When you add a tree identification to Branché or report an infected ash, you earn points that can be converted into real trees to plant, thus contributing concretely to the improvement of our urban forest (only in Montreal for now).
IMPORTANT: App only works well for tree detection on devices with GPS hardware.
