Geeksvana is your drone channel providing news

drones planting trees a campaign to plant 20 million trees let’s find out
what’s going on hey everyone my name is Sean and welcome to geeksvana
you may have already heard of the campaign to plant 20 million trees from
some of the biggest youtubers I’ve all come together to promote the campaign
for 18 trees or this all started back where mr. beast hit 20 million
subscribers and someone suggested he plant 20 million trees to celebrate the
suggestion went viral on Reddit and Twitter and after teaming up with some
other heavy-hitter YouTube channels the campaign became a reality if you were
not familiar with mr. beast he runs a very different type of channel with a
ranger of really entertaining videos including some crazy challenges one of
my favorites is his video where he opens a free car dealership it’s a good intro
into the spirit of the channel and there’s a link in the description to it
so go take a look after just quickly all of this effort from all these youtubers
is to get us to give money at team trees or where you can give just one dollar
and the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree how fantastic is that at the time
of recording the campaign has racked up donations of over 13 million including
donations from Elon Musk for 1 million trees many from mr. beast himself and
even the pun amount of 60 9420 from the main man of youtube pewdiepie
that’s probably the first time felix has been mentioned on a droney channel
although fans of his will remember back to in the day where he showed us his
drone flying skills there is a link in the description to the fundraising page
and we will keep the address on screen throughout this video this is all
wonderful and a fantastic effort but Shawn what on earth is it all have to do
with drones planting trees well this is where youtuber mark roba enters the
scene with his excellent video showing the drones in through action there’s a
link in the description to this video to reached out to the awesome people at
drone seed who kindly gave us permission to share their work and show you all
just how positive drones can be the company is only about 4 years old and
they’re working on planting trees from seeds dropped from a drone the way this
is done is using the software development is
inspiring and drone seed tell us the hardware is a combination of buying
shells or fuse larges off the shelf with everything else being their own from a
large supply chain it’s important to note however that drone seeds are not
trying to be a hardware manufacturer and they are constantly monitoring the new
drone platforms and will use whichever aircraft have the longest flight time
heaviest payload and are the most reliable and safe drone seed is the
first company in the u.s. that holds an FAA approval for heavy lift UAS
operations with multiple drones simultaneously impressive work there are
two key steps to the tree-planting process firstly a small recon drone is
sent out which uses lasers to map the terrain this information is then run
through drone seed software which creates a map and a flight plan for the
larger drones to know where to drop the seeds in order to have the maximum
chance of survival the drones are then loaded with pods which have a special
cocktail of six seeds nutrient material and even deterrent substances which will
naturally deter wildlife from simply enjoying what is dropped as a tasty meal
this is an impressive use of drones to show their unique capabilities that are
live a real change for good companies like drone seed should be
commended for bringing together such complex technologies to perform in a way
which will have a real impact on our environment drone seed is still an early
stage so mark Rover and mr. beast have instead reached out to the Arbor Day
Foundation who are the longest-running most
respected tree planting nonprofits and they agreed that for every dollar you
give they will plant a shiny new treat eats up all that carbon so go to team
trees dot org and give what you can the aim is to raise twenty million
dollars to plant 20 million trees in 2020 the great thing about this campaign
is exists because of you the YouTube audience this campaign literally became
into being because of YouTube viewers stepping up and suggesting it and then
following through with something pretty impressive fundraising to be at 13
million already is an amazing achievement and shows how positive the
community can be so go team trees dog please remember to Like and subscribe
