Deforestation is a big problem and contributor to global warming. !5% of global greenhouse gas emissions are due to deforestation. Cutting trees adds carbon dioxide to the air and gets rid of the ability to absorb the carbon dioxide that's already out in the atmosphere.
Current solutions are mainly geared towards big companies and what they should be doing, however some are also joining organizations and mixing them. As well as to stop using products that cause deforestation, for example palm oil.
An innovative solution is in the making, which is drones. Drones are budget friendly and can plant more seeds faster. It's estimated that ten seeds can be planted per minute. The way the drones are able to plant the seeds are by using pods of pre-germinated and nutritious hydro=gel seeds are shot into the ground. The drone also helps map out hidden areas of the world.
