Ex-NASA engineer to plant 1 billion trees a year with drones.  BioCarbon Engineering,  http://www.biocarbonengineering.com/, led by ex-NASA engineer Lauren Fletcher, will begin planting one billion trees per year using drone technology.  

Lumber industry, mining, agriculture, and urban expansion destroy 26 billion trees each year, but only 15 billion are replanted. This industrial scale deforestation is best combated using the latest drones.
