Grounded in a Mission To Restore Natural Habitats

In 2016, DroneSeed was founded in Seattle, Washington, with the mission to make reforestation scalable to mitigate the effects of climate change and restore forested landscapes devastated by wildfire or other disturbances.

Today, we operate in all states west of Colorado. We’ve also done projects in Western Canada and taken our work internationally with trials in New Zealand and Australia. We are the first and only company with FAA approval to operate heavy-lift swarms of drones.

Expanding Reforestation Capabilities

To scale reforestation with the backdrop of a critically low nationwide seed supply, DroneSeed acquired Silvaseed in 2021. Acquiring this 130-year-old forestry seed collection and seedling production company, and the largest private seed supplier west of Colorado positions DroneSeed as the only vertically-integrated company in the industry that offers seedlings and reforestation services.

As a one-stop shop for all reforestation needs, we provide a wide range of services to get your project started and funded as soon as possible according to seasonality.

How DroneSeed Can Help

drone-icon Reforestation

Maximize reforestation efforts with traditional planting of seedlings. Access hard-to-reach or dangerous terrain and jumpstart natural regeneration with aerial enhanced seeding with drones.

seed-icon Seed

We curate an ever growing supply of wild seeds from native tree species that will become resilient forests.

seedlings-icon Seedlings

Our nurseries are growing millions of seedlings. By 2023, we plan to more than double our nursery capacity to better serve the needs of our local communities.

Revenue from carbon removal offsets offer landowners the opportunity to be compensated for the CO2 that the planted trees will sequester over time to cover high upfront costs of reforestation efforts.
