The world is a beautiful creature, its plants and animals all compliment this unique and wonderful planet, but over the years we, as humans, have used so many resources to benefit us as necessities.
The people over at Dendra (a company based in the UK) has a goal to plan over 500 billion trees. This massive feat will be achieved, hopefully, by 2060, which is wonderful but more work for those in the tree cutting. So that the tree trimming in Texas and other states will continue.
‘How are they going to do this?’ you might ask. With Drones! The tech in 2020 is absolutely astounding, especially drones, from delivering amazon packages to closing airports they have so many benefits. The way that these lucrative people intend to re-forest the world is that they will equip these flying robots with seeds, and they will float, and plant 120 seed pots a minute. When we do the math that is 2 trees tree per second! Wow!
Before we leave the Math for now it was found that it would take 400 teams of duos with just under a dozen drones, this would mean that 10 billion trees could be planted per year. Another benefit, it’s cheap! Far cheaper than it would be by hand. Another benefit of flying machines is that there are areas that are much more difficult to get to by foot then by mechanics meaning that the robots beat out humans once again.
Now let’s have a closer look at how the process is going to work. Using satellites and images, the people over at Dendra have found the most destitute former-forests, and with the specialized seedpod (within being a seed and nutrients) they will shoot, with an air pressured push, into the ground. They then grow with the catalyst of water being sprayed upon the sod.
Back to the Math, sorry. With this double whammy of speed and accuracy it can restore any green area 150 times quicker than just manpower, and as a stated earlier 10 times cheaper.
This is a game-changer in the environmental work, and will very much benefit the whole earth, without a doubt. Yet as the earth carries on revolving higher levels of tech has to be created to satisfy the modern needs.
We lose 27 football fields every minute, so the fact that we can refill those with the speed in which it now can be done. 80% of people in the United Kingdom are slightly or very worried at the course that we are taking in terms of what is happening to trees, so a solution is very much welcomed.
With the age of environmentalists getting younger every day, like Greta Thunberg, it is the time now to act, as if we wait to long, and everything keeps depleting then it will take much more than drones and Dendra to reverse the damage that we have done.
