A Toronto startup is raising capital on Kickstarter to plant trees using drone technology. The project has already raised over $100,000 with almost 1700 backers.

According to their startup page, the company Flash Forest is a reforestation company that modifies drones to fire rapidly germinating tree seeds into the soil. Besides fighting deforestation, they aim to increase biodiversity by rebuilding degraded ecosystems with a variety of tree species and soil-enriching ingredients.

The founders at Flash Forest aim to plant 1 Billion trees by 2028 and are seeking more backers to cover costs such as Drone purchases, R&D, Legal etc. According to their site; they pledge a tree for every dollar pledged.
