Prototype Designer

The Journey

The Tremap idea was born in the garden of a 14th century estate in Cornwall, UK in 2021. Founder Jonathon Jones wanted an easy to learn, easy to use app on his phone to map the estate's collection. By the end of that year, the Tremap proof-of-concept app and database was on the app stores for download.

Since that rapid start, Tremap has evolved into the world's first global tree database platform, built for academics and amateurs, curators and communities.

Tremap is set to completely revolutionise the world of tree collection management. More than that, we're changing how we look at the 3 trillion trees around us. Tremap lets every person on the planet who has a smartphone (there are 6.6 billion of us) know every tree

At Tremap, we love simplicity and efficiency - both in how our platform works and how we work, behind the scenes, to create it. We're excited by our Journey. And we're grateful to the people who make it happen!
