iPhactory has released iPhorest, a new application for iPhone and iPod touch. iPhorest allows users to plant and grow virtual trees, and view a world map of all iPhorest users worldwide. For each virtual tree planted in the app, the company, in conjunction with The Conservation Fund, says that it will plant a native tree in real life, beginning with the restoration of the vulnerable wildlife habitat along the Gulf Coast. As the virtual iPhorest grows, the Fund will work with public natural resource agencies to ensure the real trees are protected. iPhorest is available now from the App Store and sells for $5.

The world needs more applications like these. We have the one from Amazon that lets us read books on our iPhones/iPod touches, which means we are saving trees from being used for paper. Now we have an app that lets us plant a virtual tree, leading to a real one being planted. Now everything makes sense. Not only are we killing less trees, but we’re planting new ones. AWESOME!
