THE VANCOUVER TREES APP TEAM

FROM IDEA TO TREE APP
The book project grew in scope to include
more than a thousand different trees. |
Le projet a pris de l'ampleur pour englober
plus de mille arbres.

DE L'IDÉE À L'APPLI
En 2013, la FAPC a accordé une (modeste) bourse de 1000 $ au
projet d'application Trees for Vancouver. En une seule année...ce
microprojet n'a eu de cesse de grandir!

In 2013, LACF contributed a (modest) $1000 grant to the Trees for
Vancouver - Reference Application Software project. And in just one
short year since then...the pocket-sized project grew...and grew!
TREES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS...
Any student or landscape architect from Vancouver soon
discovers that there is a sizeable gap in the horticultural literature
for plant material specific to the region. The majority of books
and websites are intended for readers in more populated areas,
such as the UK, California and eastern North America. There are a
few notable exceptions. Gerald Straley's Trees of Vancouver (UBC
Press, 1992) and Susan Murray's Our Sylvan Heritage (Fitzhenry
and Whiteside, 2004) stand out, but they are primarily useful
for locating and identifying noteworthy trees: Murray for trees
south of the Fraser River and Straley for trees within Vancouver's
city limits. Still, the range of trees grown in Vancouver is so
much wider, and specific cultural information about those trees
is mostly lacking. The Vancouver Trees app was developed to fill
that gap.

66 LANDSCAPES PAYSAGES

A THOUSAND DIFFERENT TREES
Douglas Justice, primary author of the app, teaches in the
Landscape Architecture program at the University of British
Columbia and is Curator of Living Collections at UBC Botanical
Garden. His course, Woody Plants in the Landscape, covers
a broad range of trees and shrubs hardy in the area, and
Justice approaches the material with equal parts botanical
interpretation and horticultural experience. Mostly to satisfy
repeated requests by students for information about the
availability of specific trees in local nurseries and their behaviour
under Vancouver's conditions, Justice started writing down what
he'd been teaching with the intention of producing a course
textbook. However, with the encouragement of students, garden
designers, arborists and landscape architects, and the help of
collaborators Daniel Mosquin, Karin England and Steven Clark,
the book project grew in scope to include most of the cultivated
and commercially available trees in the Vancouver area - more
than a thousand different trees. A turning point was reached in
2011, when the group decided that it would be more valuable to
publish the information in the form of an app. This would allow
many more images to accompany the text, and map locations
could be incorporated. The electronic format would allow updates
and most importantly, user feedback could be a component of
those updates.
IS THIS SPECIES A GOOD BET?
The original goal of the publication was not only to describe
the range of deciduous and evergreen trees in Vancouver for
identification purposes, but also to explain the local success
