Using drones to plant millions of trees (video)


Drones are all the rage these days. So why not use them to counter industrial scale deforestation with industrial scale reforestation ? (granted, we shouldn’t cut the trees in the first place…)

The engineers of BioCarbon Engineering believe their drones could decrease the costs of planting trees to 15 percent of the normal price while increasing its speed to the point the technology could plant a billion ( A BILLION ) trees per year. 

Here is a video presenting this great idea :

 

To learn out more about this great idea, please read TreeHugger’s and The Independant articles on it. With the billions of trees that need to be planted in the next decades all over the world, I guess this technology might be totally adequate to help tree planting actually done by boots on the ground.
