Frequently Asked Questions
We answer some common questions you may have about DroneSeed.
DroneSeed uses drone swarms to quickly and safely replant after wildfires. We are the first and only company approved by the FAA to operate our massive drones. We use swarms to dispense a specialized vessel carrying native seed and survival boosting amendments. By using seed, and not tree seedlings, we can be on the ground months ahead of standard timelines, before invasive weeds grow.
How can DroneSeed help my forest?
We know that part of the challenge with a wildfire is knowing what to do after. So we use moderate resolution post-wildfire imagery to do an estimation of what will need to be replanted. We’ll also help you understand the risks your forest now faces, and provide options and resources for next steps.
What does the free assessment get me?
Short answer: Yes! We have completed projects in a variety of environments for government agencies, timber companies, and nonprofits with moderate success so far, and constantly improving on our design. For full details, see a recent USDA publication of our initial trial results.
Does drone reforestation with DroneSeed work?
You can generally expect to pay $275-$475 per acre. However, by working with DroneSeed and acting quickly you can avoid the costs and hassle of invasive species removal years down the road. We are also working on a carbon credit solution to significantly lower this cost.
How much does it cost?
Put simply, we will start with an aerial survey collecting high-resolution imagery and LiDAR data. We’ll use the data to identify ideal microsites for your plants, and let you keep the processed data as part of our service. We then come back and use our drone swarms to dispense the pucks, and follow-up with post-project monitoring. You can also watch this feature of us explaining our process on NBC's Today Show.
