PictureThis Plant ID App Review: A Game-Changer for Your Backyard Reforestation Journey

[Note: This is a completely independent review and I have zero affiliation with the PictureThis app.]

If you're passionate about reforesting your backyard and looking for an easy-to-use tool to help you in the process, the PictureThis app could be a game-changer. In our first video review, we take a look at this powerful plant identification app, demonstrating its features and explaining a bit about how it can transform your gardening experience. Now this is not an extensive review, as we missed some key features such as the Reminders and Light Meter features, but this is a good general overview to give you a glimpse into its capabilities. The app is one of my personal favorites and my kids and I are constantly using it to learn about plats and trees both in our yard and we are out in nature.


How I Use PictureThis Plant ID App:

Picture is a user-friendly plant identification app and much more that I use primarily to quickly identify plants by simply snapping a photo. Upon scanning the photo, the app provides essential information about each plant, including its name, family, if it's invasive or native, if it is healthy, care tips, and much more. Note that it is important to get a clear picture for the app to process, as you'll see in the video, an out of focus photo can result in a false identification.

Additional Features:

Beyond plant identification, PictureThis offers various other features to help you in your backyard reforestation journey. In the More section of the app, you can Explore By Identifying plants based on allergens, weeds, toxicity, and more. The app also includes a thriving Discord community which I just joined.

PictureThis is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to reforest their backyard, offering plant identification, care tips, and a supportive community at your fingertips. Be sure to check out our video review to see the app in action and learn more about how it can help you transform your backyard into a biodiverse haven. Happy gardening!
