Re-planting the Earth with drones – CBS News

Some 6 billion trees are lost every year — more than human hands can replant. A former NASA engineer has technology to solve the problem.

Lee Vella’s insight:
Very interesting video about how a former NASA engineer is creating a way to plant trees at a ginormous scale. Planting close to 10 billion trees a year is the goal. They first collect data (soil type, biodiversity) of the landscape and match the species to the right landscape. The drones fly 10 feet off the ground, and dispose of small biodegradable seed pods that contain all the ingredients for the seeds to germinate.
