Drones Can Help Humanity Fight Global Warming

Due to long-term temperature increase inthe climate system of our planet, scientists have long been developing various methods to prevent catastrophic consequences. Fortunately, the problem of global warming excites not only scientists, but also the majority of people who are not indifferent to our planet. One of them was a team of Canadian graduates of technical universities who decided to help the planet by planting a billion trees on it by 2028 with the help of modern drones.

Using unmanned aerial vehicles and special seeds, around 20 billion new trees can be planted by 2028

Can drones help with global warming?

According to an article published on the, a team of Canadian alumni, has created a special project to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of the planet. An ambitious project called Flash Forest is planned to be implemented by 2028, with a billion trees planted using unmanned aerial vehicles and specially designed seeds that have an accelerated germination process. The team calculated that this technology allows you to grow trees 10 times faster, reducing the cost of the planting process by about 80% compared to traditional methods of growing trees.

Flash Forest project technology knownbased on the use of a heavy lifting drone, which is equipped with a pneumatic firing device, allowing the mechanism to insert the landing stems into the soil to a suitable depth. Each seedling of the tree contains at least three previously sprouted seeds, mycorrhiza, fertilizers and additional ingredients necessary for the full growth of the plant.

Specially made seeds already have everything necessary for successful and accelerated growth.

After landing in the ground, the team will trackthe growth process of new plants, periodically providing seedlings with nitrogen and other nutrients using a sprayer. An additional cartographic drone will be used to track the growth process. During the project, the team plans to plant eight different plant species to create a healthy and healthy ecosystem, and to plant enough trees to offset carbon emissions in North America.

The main objective of the project is compensationcarbon emissions to the extent necessary to have a significant and measurable impact on climate change over the next decade. Thanks to close cooperation with forestry experts, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for multispectral analysis makes it possible to find ideal places for landing, as well as to reveal valuable data on the health status of the ecosystem.

The team notes that the protesters are alreadymanaged to land eight hardwood and conifers in southern Ontario. The manufacturability of the project is capable of planting almost any tree species, which can also be used by larger potential investors.
