DroneSeed is scaling reforestation to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. As bigger, hotter, and more frequent fires devastate more forested land each year, natural forest regeneration is in decline and additional infrastructure and technology is needed to regenerate native forests more quickly and completely. Acting as a one-stop-shop for reforestation, DroneSeed provides a wide range of reforestation services to get forest restoration projects up and running in weeks, not years; these services include seed collection, seedling cultivation, aerial drone-based seeding, and carbon offset generation. To fund its operations and open new revenue streams for landowners, DroneSeed sells forward-looking carbon offsets, among the first of their kind available on the voluntary offset market. After its acquisition of 130-year-old forestry company Silvaseed, DroneSeed is now the first vertically integrated reforestation company in the industry and one of the largest private seed suppliers in the nation.
