An Oxford-based startup has an ambitious plan to combat deforestation by planting 1 billion trees a year by using drones.

BioCarbon Engineering is exploring new precision planting methods and mapping techniques to achieve this goal.

“We are going to change the world 1 billion trees at a time,” said CEO and former NASA engineer Lauren Fletcher.

“The only option we had previous was hand planting, which is slow and really expensive and just can’t keep up with industry scale deforestation. We are hoping that our technologies will provide opportunities to really scale up reforestation and replanting rates.”
