BioCarbon Engineering, a UK-based company backed by drone manufacturer Parrot, has been using the flying robots to plant trees on a massive scale. It has come up with a method of planting trees quickly and cheaply. Not only that, but those areas which are unviable or not fertile can also be converted into growing land. The drones, which were developed by an ex-NASA engineer, are designed to fire off pre-germinated seed pods into the ground.
Rolando Castro’s insight:
A net of ~6 billion trees are lost every year, but BioCarbon Engineering team has innovated a method that can plant trees at a high rate. They are currently replanting mangrove saplings in Myanmar.
