A Canadian tech company is aiming to plant 1 billion trees by 2028—and they plan on achieving their goal with drones.

Toronto-based startup Flash Forest has been using a fleet of aerial drones which has been designed to plant trees ten times faster than human planters. Since they began testing their prototype drones earlier this year, they have already managed to plant several thousand trees across Ontario.

Using pre-germinated seed pods, the drones are capable of planting trees at just 50 cents were sapling—which is just one-fourth the cost of typical planting methods.

lash Forest hopes to diversify their ecosystems by using eight different species of tree. The organization has already managed to hit their first crowdfunding goal of $10,000 within 24 hours of launching their Kickstarter campaign.

The group now plans to start planting trees in April with at least 150,000 trees in the ground by the end of 2020.
