I am a graduate student at Lehigh University in the Biological Sciences PhD program, currently studying evolution. I love plants (especially trees) and iNat makes it easy to learn and identify many new species!

Check out some videos I made to help with your identifications:
Tree of Heaven vs native lookalikes - https://youtu.be/4BA5Dec3_8o
Staghorn vs Smooth Sumac: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-7DqtjiCAc
Tulip Trees (Genus Liriodendron): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUTiVV1KEGQ

Some misidentified observations. I'll add to this list whenever I come across them:
