Planting pods has several advantages over seedlings.
1) Drones allow us to plant pods 10X faster per drone than seedlings can be planted.
2) Our seed pods contain 3 pre-germinated tree seeds, mycorrhiza, nutrients and other supportive species for the area.
3) Pods are much less energy/ water intensive to produce and have a lower environmental impact.
4) Pods can be created in mass within a month, whereas seedlings take 1 to 2 years of intensive care in a nursery before they can be planted. This allows us to plant rapidly and at 20% the cost of a seedling.
