Dendra Systems is a team of scientists, ecologists, and engineers that uses drones to restore degraded land. Its Gen 3 drone is capable of seeding up to 60 hectares per day.

But the company says its core focus is not just mass planting but also restoring damaged ecosystems.

The drones are equipped with ecology-trained AI and can monitor soil health, analyze the surrounding ecosystem, and provide data for better land management and restoration.
