A company has developed a robot that can make planting trees way more easier

Milrem Robotics, an Estonian company, has developed a robot forester that can plant and nurture young trees and can carry up to 300 saplings and plant a hectare of forest in less than six hours.

The company are looking to support reforestation efforts around the world despite the robot being made for commercial forests. The machines are equipped with Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) — which uses laser pulses to build a 3D image of the robots’ surroundings — and GPS (global positioning) to navigate precisely across the terrain.

The robot takes note of the position of each sapling in a database as it is planted, meaning that a specialized brushcutter robot can then cut back competing growth without harming the young trees.
