Partnerships & Achievements
We are excited to work with DroneSeed to explore how we can increase the pace and scale of habitat restoration to benefit both nature and people.
Earlier this year, @DroneSeed became the first & only U.S. company to receive an #FAA waiver to use [heavy-lift] drone swarms.
DroneSeed’s 2018 & 2019 project results were recently published in a USDA Journal, Tree Planters’ Notes.
DroneSeed uses five drones at a time that use a 3D map of the area to drop seeds within a centimeter of accuracy.
Frequently Asked Questions
We answer some common questions you may have about DroneSeed.
How can DroneSeed help my forest?
DroneSeed uses drone swarms to quickly and safely replant after wildfires. We are the first and only company approved by the FAA to operate our massive drones. We use swarms to dispense a specialized vessel carrying native seed and survival boosting amendments. By using seed, and not tree seedlings, we can be on the ground months ahead of standard timelines, before invasive weeds grow.
What does the free assessment get me?
We know that part of the challenge with a wildfire is knowing what to do after. So we use moderate resolution post-wildfire imagery to do an estimation of what will need to be replanted. We’ll also help you understand the risks your forest now faces, and provide options and resources for next steps.
Does drone reforestation with DroneSeed work?
Short answer: Yes! We have completed projects in a variety of environments for government agencies, timber companies, and nonprofits with moderate success so far, and constantly improving on our design. For full details, see a recent USDA publication of our initial trial results.
What is DroneSeed’s process?
Put simply, we will start with an aerial survey collecting high-resolution imagery and LiDAR data. We’ll use the data to identify ideal microsites for your plants, and let you keep the processed data as part of our service. We then come back and use our drone swarms to dispense the pucks, and follow-up with post-project monitoring. You can also watch this feature of us explaining our process on NBC’s Today Show.
Replanting with drones works
Six times faster than a human tree-planter
Airborne over post-wildfire sites within 30 days
Propagates 40 acres in a single day
Let’s see if we’re a good fit.
