Tree-planting drones are firing seed missiles to restore forests

In Myanmar, a major project is under way to restore coastal mangrove forests, with the support of seed-firing drones. It’s considered early proof of a technology that could help restore forests at the pace needed to fight climate change.

The appropriate combination of species and particular environmental conditions have made the restoration work, and they are ready to scale up planting. The project recognises that humans can’t as easily cover the amount of land that could potentially be restored with the help of drones. Two drone operators can theoretically plant 400,000 trees in a day.
