  • we utilize heavy lift drone swarms to reforest uh, immediately after wildfires.

  • Seattle based startup Drone Seed is on a mission to make reforestation scalable by planting trees literally from the sky.

  • Drain Seed CEO Grant Canary.

  • We're losing forest faster toe wildfire that nature is regenerating it and our systems.

  • Today, with nurseries and manual labor out there doing superheroes work, it's insufficient to keep up and keep the forest we have.

  • That's where drones come in.

  • The company has been using its fleet to distribute tree seeds, fertilizers and pesticide current onto fire damage land to help speed up reforestation.

  • Thea drones, which are 8 ft in diameter, are capable of carrying £57 worth of parks on flying 8 to 18 minutes at a time.

  • The vessel is dry fibers, soaks up moisture, helps the seed avoid desiccation or drying out.

  • Has fertilizer has natural pest deterrents like spicy pepper and the getting carried in £57 groupings and dropped onto the site.

  • It's like a house taking off.

  • It's a very big aircraft.

  • Um, as soon as it's gone, it's Ah, there's there's Z.

  • When it takes off, it sounds like like bees drain Seeds, says its method plants trees six times faster than doing it manually.

  • Their projects are starting to cover lands of more than 1000 acres, and reforestation efforts are more urgent now than ever before.

  • 2020 was the worst year on record in terms of destruction caused by wildfires across the U.

  • S West Coast.

  • The way to think about this is not 0, 2020 was a bad year.

  • It's 2020 was the coolest year for the next 100 years.

  • And so as we think about that, like, we can choose a future in which we reforest each year and we have forests.

  • Or we could look at where the trends are taking us and say there is a future in which there aren't forests in many states, if not all.

  • In addition to helping with reforestation during, says says its mission also includes mitigating the effects of climate change via carbon capture.

  • By facilitating mass reforestation, Canary says the company offers a scalable solution to sequester carbon, and it's just a question of Are we gonna build the tools?

  • Are we going to respond to the damages and impacts that we've already made it by putting in the amount of carbon that's already in the atmosphere today out there.

  • And so that's what our team has signed up for is how can we be one of those tools?

  • There are many other tools were by no means the only the silver bullet solution.

  • But they were the ones that are scalable today, uh, to buy us more time.
