The Tree Council launched its new mobile phone app at its AGM on 12 October 2017 and it has subsequently been updated, improved and incorporated into the ecotrack app designed by Steven MacLeod at Agile Cloud. The ecotrack app enables the public to record trees and tree loss (as well as predator and weed control and many other conservation activities). To download the App for your smartphone visit the App Sore (for Apple) or the Google Play Store (for Android).
Please consider making a donation to support our development of the App on our Givealittle Page here. Thank you!
If you have any problems using the App please let us know so we can fix them – it’s a work in progress. If something doesn’t work try uninstalling it from your phone and downloading a new version, we are making improvements all the time.
