Manual tree-planting may soon be a thing of the past.

If you were waiting until being environmentally conscious meant having to do no extra work, you may be in luck.

According to The Independent, of the 26 billion trees that are burned down each year, only 15 billion of them are replanted.

Former NASA engineer Lauren Fletcher has the answer. His BioCarbon Engineering has a plan in place to plant a billion trees a year with the help of automated drones.

Fletcher says:

“The only way we’re going to take on these age-old problems is with techniques that weren’t available to us before. By using this approach we can meet the scale of the problem out there.”

The drones will shoot pods with seeds into the ground.

The drones will shoot pods with seeds into the ground.

Drones will soar over an area to determine if it has potential for tree growth. If so, they will then fly 2-3 meters above the ground and fire down pods that contain pre-germinated seeds. Hydrogel is also added for nutritional purposes.

With the use of just two drone operators, Fletcher thinks it’s feasible to plant up to 36,000 trees per day. Adding more controllers could result in over a billion a year.
