What is a forestry app?

A forestry application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that allows users to track and monitor their forested land. Forestry apps allow users to create and manage a "forest," add trees and other vegetation to the forest, and track changes in vegetation over time.

Forestry apps are similar to other photography and drawing apps, as well as image editing and special effects apps. Popular forestry apps include Photosynth and SketchBook.

Here are some recent forestry app examples built with Crowdbotics:

  • A collaboration app built for the Forestry service that includes a scheduler, event planning, and tips for planting trees and maintaining build sites.

What is the typical cost to build a forestry app?

A forestry app usually costs $15,000 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $7,500 or as high as $22,500. A forestry app with a low number of features (also known as a "minimum viable product", or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality.

For example, here are some recent forestry app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a forestry app?

A forestry app usually takes 200 hours to build. However, a forestry app can be built in as few as 100 hours, or in as many as 300 hours. The exact timeline mostly depends on how complicated your app is. As a general rule, it will take longer if you require highly custom designs, niche features, or non-standard release platforms.

For example, the most recent forestry apps built with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your forestry application

A forestry app can grow by leveraging the data that it collects from users to inform business decisions. By analyzing data about sales and inventory, a forestry app can inform business decisions such as when to ship products and which products to focus on. In order to improve user retention, a forestry app should offer in-app education about the industry, such as how to identify specific types of trees.

Risks and challenges of building a forestry application

A forestry app faces legal risks associated with the violation of forestry regulations, the discouragement of sustainable forest practices, and the infringement of intellectual property rights. Before releasing an app to the public, it is important to conduct due diligence on your target market’s forest management regulations. You should also establish a mechanism for encouraging users to report illegal behavior.
