Startup BioCarbon Engineering is trying to plant 1 billion trees in the span of a year

BioCarbon Engineering (BCE) is a high-tech, high volume green thumb. Composed of a team of engineers and biosphere experts, it aims to rebuild ecosystems by leveraging drones in mapping and tree planting. The goal: to plant one billion trees in a year.

It might be a crazy goal but the startup is giving everything it has by developing the right tech for the job. The first step toward a greener planet: mapping.

On the forefront is technology that uses remote sensing to collect valuable information about target areas. Using drones, BCE can record detailed area geography, vegetation density, water deficit and crop stress. With the information, BCE can start planning what trees to grow.
