Old Military Planes may soon be used to reforest barren areas.

Lockheed Martin and Aerial Forestation Inc are exploring an exciting, green idea to use old military planes to plant thousands of tree saplings. Over 2000 C-130 Hercules decommissioned planes are sitting idle all over the world that could be outfitted with sapling cones which contain some amount of fertilizer and moisture and are capable of burying themselves in the soil. Lockheed  says that the flights could drop more than 900,000 tree saplings a day, which really takes the concept of seed bombing by hand to a new level and looks ideal for a deforested area to be made green in a shorter time period.
