VIDEO: How we use drones to plant native trees and fight desertification
Aramco planted 100,000 native trees in its pilot project.
Drone technology can plant thousands of trees a day by dispersing nutrient-rich seed balls across large areas.
We test drone technology in the Kingdom to increase forestation across large areas.
In our pilot project, we planted 100,000 native trees, including ghat, mustard trees, and local Acacia plants.
The drones are fired with optical detection devices to measure the growth of seeds. Forestation contributes to the protection of ecosystems and the reduction of desertification.
