What we do

At Dronecoria we are developpin a forestry technology updated to the 21st century, which open source licenses that allow entities and companies to be able to carry out efficient reforestations of high value, low cost, and build a community around them to form a new economy of ecological restoration.

We want to do it in a collaborative and open way. That is why we share our research,  we encourage environmental organizations to know out techniques, talk and cooperate. Together we can regreen the world.

Open technologies

Technological solutions for direct sowing of forests. From our drone carrying 10 kg of seeds, to a seed coating machine. Open Source Hardware. Ready to download, build and start reforesting.

Open science

Research on forest seed enhancement. Improve and protect forest seeds with science-based methodologies to successfully green the environment. Open Cience. Ready to learn and replicate.

ecosystem services

If you are interested in restoring an ecosystem,  contact us and we will inform you the possibilities that  we offer.

  • Ecosystem restorations by direct aerial seeding.

  • Ecosystem restorations by buried planting.

  • Consultancy.

  • Improvement of forest seeds.

  • Training and management of sowing and planting reforestation projects.

"Nature don't plant trees, it sow seeds"

Our relationship with nature is about learn. We observe, admire, copy and try to help by making tasks easier, letting nature do the rest. 

"For us, Open Source isn't a choice, it's a philosophy."

We face challenges with digital manufacturing technologies and the Open Source philosophy as principles. We don’t want to own machines that plant thousands of trees. We want to teach thousands of people to plant thousands of trees”

"This is a huge challenge that no one can confront alone"

We want to be replicable, we want to be inspiration and be inspired, we want to meet among those of us who think the same way and walk nearby. We want to have no borders or a single language. We want to create a global platform to green the world we inhabit.

contests and calls

Introducing (and winning) competitions, as well as helping us test and improve our proposal, is serving us to fund us.

Since the beginning of Dronecoria this is the contests we have won.

ecosystem services

The money we get by offering related services helps us move forward with our goals. In addition to paying wages and expenses, we always have something left to invest in open source R&D.

April 2021: We moved our Lab

We spent the whole month of March moving the seed lab where we conducted our germination experiments, seed improvements, and where our millions of seeds sleep, to another much wider and brighter space. The municipality of Pitres gave us the offices of the former...

March 2021: We publish our first book!

Well, we didn't write the whole book, but two chapters 🙂 In 2015 we went to Chiang Mai University in Thailand, to the Forest Restoration Research Unit, and participated in a workshop ahead of its time: Automated Forest Restoration. Can Robots Revive Forests? We shared...
