The Journey

 Founder Jonathon Jones wanted an easy to use app on his phone to map an extremely rare collection of trees and shrubs. He scoured the market and tested all the tree mapping systems out there, but none were as simple and easy to use as he needed. He came up with a brief with lots of unique features, including to help the collection owners instantly and easily every tree and shrub. By the end of 2021, 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 platform, built you, for academics and amateurs, curators and communities.

Tremap is completely revolutionising the world of tree collection management. More than that, Tremap changes 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 to create it.
