#044 – Drone Swarms For Sustainable Forestry with DroneSeed

In Podcast by Ian Smith


DroneSeed works with timber companies and non-profits to plant tree seeds, spray herbicides to protect them, and monitor their growth—all with drones. They’re based in Seattle, Washington and are the first company approved by the FAA to deliver agricultural payloads by drone swarms. CEO Grant Canary and CTO Jeff Prouty join Ian to discuss how their drone company is built to help the planet maintain sustainable growth in the forestry industry and offset carbon emissions.
