App: Africa Tree Finder
This easy-to-use App shows you data on the distribution of indigenous tree species in different natural vegetation types, combined with information on the products and services that the tree species can provide. It arms you – local community members, government agencies, private sector owners, and other land managers – with the information you need to select the best tree species for your landscape restoration or agroforestry effort.
The Africa Tree Finder can tell you which trees are best suited to meet the demand for wood-based products, human consumption, animals, and environmental services. It can also tell you the local names of species and provides vital information on propagation and seed treatment, storage and management.
