How to plant 1 billion trees at a time?
Billions of trees disappears each year because of destruction of global forests and jungles, increases land usage for agriculture and urban expansion. This destruction at industrial scale is occuring much faster than reforestation because the current state of the art method is hand planting which is slow, labour intensive and expensive.
The principal mission of BioCarbon Engineering is to automate industrial scale reforestation. In order to accomplish this, BioCarbon Engineering is utilizing many technologies which have already been demonstrated in precision agriculture. This includes satellite and near earth remote sensing and the next generation of aerial robotics systems.
