What Are Tree Bombers?

As storage vessels for carbon dioxide, trees are vital to protecting the climate. But every year around the world thousands of square kilometres of forest are lost through fires and deforestation. A UK-based team now wants to use technology to plant more than a billion new trees – from the air. Using a remotecontrolled quadcopter, tree saplings, safe inside green containers, will be dropped over barren areas like bombs. The biodegradable packaging drills into the ground and, over time, is decomposed by rain. The seeds can germinate and grow roots, becoming one of a billion new trees helping to slow deforestation.
