Dendra Systems is working to restore biodiverse ecosystems by using drones to plant trees and grasses. Their work brings together data ecologists, engineers and drone operators to create positive and lasting change. Their target is to plant a staggering 500 billion trees.

Susan Graham, CEO of this evolutionary company says: ‘The scale of what we’re doing is going to re-green our Earth.’

Fired from a drone, this seed pod contains all the nutrients a tree needs to grow.

A drone can carry 500 different species and seed up to 60 hectares per day. So, imagine what a swarm of drones can achieve.

They are able to plant the right species in the right location and keep records so success can be measured.
