DroneSeed: Grant Takes Reforestation to the Skies

Here's a question I get often. How many trees can a tree planter plant, if a tree planter could plant trees all day? The answer: Many fewer than if the tree planter was a squadron of drones flying in formation precision dropping seed pellets to micro-sites. SATs were my favorite. 

We have an issue here on earth: we're burning forests faster than they can naturally regenerate. Grant Canary is here to do something about that, and he's brought reinforcements. DroneSeed was founded to solve the inefficiencies wrought in traditional re-forestation techniques, chief among them, it takes way too long. He's leading the effort to, as he put it, become the "opening pitcher" for carbon sequestration efforts through the marriage of cutting edge technology with generations old forestry knowledge. 

Come for the drones, stay for the planetary salvation.
