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