Abstract
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) of the Philippines helps preserve native and production trees through strict
supervision operated under their active laws and policies. A tree inventory form is provided by the office to register known trees around a forest
land or community upon the request to cut down trees or tree preservation. Some of the formís contents include identification of tree species with
its geographic location. Using the mobile application Pic-A-Tree, the manual process of identifying tree species and its location has been assisted
using Android smartphone. The image of the tree leaf captured by the phone undergoes image processing and allows the user to send tree
identification request to the server and return with an information confirming its identified tree specimen and is plotted graphically through Google
map. The results of this study show that the system achieved 91% accuracy from the 100 samples conducted, certainly proving to have a good score.
Thus, the system proves to be a reliable and beneficial utility for the identification and plotting of trees in the environment as a potential starting
point for our government foresters and the development of this technology.

Key words: Tree Inventory, Geographic location, Mobile Application, Image Processing, Google Map
