We were once asked why we do what we do. Why, instead of simply planting trees in a monoculture system, did we decide to do the most difficult thing, which is to plant forests in mosaics adaptable to each region, on an industrial scale, and still helping to recover degraded areas with reforestation?
The answer is simple: the fight to save the planet is more than a flag, it is a life purpose.
For us life is a constant fight and this fight does not stop until the last day. For this reason, instead of settling down with planting African mahogany in a monoculture system, a project that we dominate and execute with mastery and extreme speed, we decided to do something even more daring and necessary for our planet. Moreover, in the same way that eucalyptus is planted: fast, cheap and on an industrial scale, to recover degraded areas and solve problems of environmental liabilities for the landowners.
Our purpose is aligned with the need to save the planet by planting 1 trillion trees. Yes, 1.2 trillion trees is what humanity needs to plant to stop global warming. Without scale and speed, this will not be possible. In addition, this is our place in all of this: to develop machinery and technology to plant large forests at low costs, so that reforestation is accessible to both large companies and medium and small landowners.
As you need space to plant, and to maintain the forest you also need to take care of the families around you, we believe that partnership with rural producers who need to reforest – and stay up to date with the law – is one of the ways. For them, we offer concrete solutions such as design and reforestation to settle their environmental liabilities, making them able to access credit lines and return to producing sustainably.
The iPlantForest Group responds to these needs and offers an economically viable alternative to face this gigantic task, which is to reforest recovering degraded areas and transforming this into a profitable business for all, the result of which can be reinvested in more planting.
It is possible to plant forests (multiple species) on an industrial scale and still create a viable and attractive business for thousands of landowners. With this project, we have the chance to plant forests in millions of hectares, initially throughout the Legal Amazon and later in the world. To undertake this monumental task, we designed and built four different versions of the forest planting machine. This equipment will help us plant an average of 25 ha/day of forest with only two operators per machine. In this way, we can, with more machines, plant hundreds of hectares per day and cope with this challenge of planetary proportions.
The Forest.Bot (Patent Pending), forest planting machine is currently the fastest and most efficient machine for planting nursery seedlings on the market, perfectly performing the task of planting tree seedlings, without the need for human transfer, using a system quality control of planting each seedling based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is our specialty and our base of action since 1986, georeferencing of each seedling, irrigation of seedlings during planting, in short, the Forest.Bot (Patent Pending ) meets the needs of companies that need to plant millions of hectares of trees annually, and is the answer to reforestation on a Global scale.
We are not silent in the face of difficulties. If we find an obstacle, we build a solution. Nothing will stop us from realizing this purpose.
To paraphrase the Romans:
