Dating applications are a 21st-century phenomenon and there have been many variations — from ones that match you with individuals based on food preferences to ones that encourage and empower women to initiate the conversation, however, there hasn't been one quite like the Timber app. Powered by Husqvarna, the application connects tree lovers with trees from around the globe. Once a match is established, users can chat with the vegetation which only responds with emojis that relate to nature.
The Timber app is a tongue-in-cheek spoof of the dating services available to consumers and it is launched by Husqvarna for Valentine's Day. Aside from the entertainment value, the application also draws attention to the company's Chainsaw Academy which is an online resource for responsible forestry.
