DroneSeed, uses drones,
. . . in post-fire environments,
. . . to combat the spread of wildfires, and
. . . keep affected areas healthy, using automation,
.  . to make the revitalization of our forests:
. . . . . . faster,
. . . . . . cheaper, and
. . . . . . more efficient.

Using drones, the company is able to:
. . . . . . spray,
. . . . . . protect, and
. . . . . . plant with precision,
. . . in addition to:
. . . . . . surveying,
. . . . . . monitoring, and
. . . . . . collecting data.

But they don’t just shoot out seeds willy-nilly, leaving them in un-optimal conditions.
. . . The drones use machine learning models,
. . . setting out to find various ‘microsites,’
. . . where the seeds will face better chances of survival.
What’s more, the seeds are pre-packaged into small bundles,
. . . filled with nutrients, and
. . . covered in the chemical capsaicin, to keep hungry creatures at bay.
It’s this extra attention to detail,
. . . which improves the odds of each tree’s future success.
