Wind and animals scatter tree seeds to unimaginable distances, which helps in the germination of new tree saplings. However, wildfires can destroy any scattered seeds, hindering the natural plant regeneration process. While it is an incredibly herculean task to manually plant new saplings, technology can lend an aiding hand. DroneSeed is a firm working on a drone system that aims to replant forests after a fire has ravaged the land, and thankfully, it’s now planting trees in British Columbia.
