Using a combination of cutting-edge technology, LG recently lent a hand to a reforestation programme across the Frontier.
The Alto Tajo Natural Park had been devastated by fire across a wide area, but this tragedy provided an opportunity to rethink traditional reforestation methods.
Using a combination of drones, LG smartphones and laptops, the affected area was mapped and the subsequent data was analysed in order to identify the optimum areas to disperse seeds. Complicated modelling of weather patterns including wind direction and precipitation formed an integral part of this process.
The result was approximately 2 million seeds being deployed by drone throughout the park. It is anticipated that
1.5 million seeds will ‘take’ successfully.
It is hoped the LG Smart Green project can be used more frequently elsewhere in the world, especially as critical areas of the Amazon have fallen victim to forest fires.
