Drone technology companies are currently developing a high-tech concept that will one day enable them to plant one billion trees a year. The aim is to combat global deforestation and to contribute overall to greater sustainability.
The progressive deforestation has such a serious impact that even the success of our most ambitious environmental protection measures cannot compensate. The global stock of trees shrinks billion copies annually, for example by illegal logging, grubbing-up and habitat destruction. But although deforestation poses a complex problem with many causes and challenges, one aspect is easily understandable:
Planting new trees is very labor-intensive and expensive, which is why so far not so many trees can be planted anew, as will be cut down at the same time.
In Addition To Lower Costs And Higher Speed, The Technology Offers Many Other Advantages
The mapping technology is used to increase the likelihood of a successful planting process and healthy forest development. As an aircraft is used, it is also possible to reach terrain that would not be accessible by conventional approaches. The drone shoots seed tanks into the ground, thus planting numerous trees in a short period of time. The containers can be filled with pregerminated seed and a nutrient-containing water-based gel to fill with minerals.
The next steps will be to make the innovative technology on a large scale applicable, to further improve the technology for distributing the seed tanks and to arouse the interest of potential investors and partners to bring the concept to market.
