Planting trees in a more efficient way

There are a variety of tree-planting techniques, including planting by hand and delivering dry seeds by air. However, hand-planting is slow and expensive, and spreading dry seeds results in low uptake rates.

Nature and Context

New technology can provide solutions for common planting issues. First, by using precision agriculture techniques, it can increase uptake rates. Second, scalable, automated technology significantly reduces the manpower requirements and costs. Finally, mapping UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) could also provide invaluable intelligence on planting patterns, landscape design and appropriate timing.
