Reforestation: Using drones for tree planting

Today I wanted to provide you with a short post about a topic that is also important to me. Planting trees to reforest our woods ie. reforestation. Yes you have read correctly. People are planning using drones for tree planting. Here is how.

Using drones for tree planting and reforestation

Most of us will know what drones are. Drones in the private area are annoying little objects with which someone can ruthlessly exploit our privacy if they wish. Since the prices for drones have gone down extremely nearly everyone can buy a drone these days. And I am not so sure whether this is a good thing. But this is a topic for another post.

But drones can also help us in more useful areas of our daily lifes and difficult situations. Here are just three examples:

  • The future will surely provide us with drone delivery of purchases right to our doorstep. No more dirty delivery trucks clogging our streets. And this is good future in my view.
  • Or drones will assist in surveying vast areas much faster and cost effective as ever before. This technology is especially helpful when we think about pollution crime or wildlife monitoring and protection.
  • Drones can be used for search and rescue for example and help us save lifes.

One other option for using drones these days is to use drones for tree planting and to improve our global efforts for reforestation. Here is the tweet that made me aware of this new way of using a drone:
