Climate change in drones' sights with ambitious plan to remotely plant nearly 100,000 trees a day

An Australian engineer is hoping to use drones to plant 1 billion trees every year to fight an unfolding global catastrophe.

The team hopes their technology can help
 with land restoration around the world.
Deforestation and forest degradation make up 17 per cent of the world's carbon emissions — more than the entire world's transportation sector, according to the United Nations.

Burned or cleared forests release their stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and land restoration experts say technology must play a big part in addressing the problem.
