Tree planting from planes

The plan is to reforest the Earth, using military planes to drop trees which then self-plant, their design meaning that they can burrow into the ground. The designer (AWESOME DUDE!) comments:
“The possibilities are amazing,” he gushed to the Guardian. “We can fly at 1,000ft at 130 knots planting more than 3,000 cones a minute in a pattern across the landscape – just as we did with landmines, but in this case each cone contains a sapling. That’s 125,000 trees for each sortie and 900,000 trees in a day.”

HOW COOL!
