the importance of forests

million hectares

Every year, the planet loses 5 million hectares of forest (FAO, The state of the world's forests, 2022).

A climate emergency

According to the UN, 1 billion hectares must be reforested by 2030(Ecosystem reforestation for People, Nature and Climate, 2021). At the current rate, only 5% of the target will be achieved.


... people depend on forests for their livelihoods - including around 70 million indigenous cultures. They are farmers, seed collectors, traders, producers, etc.

How does the MORFO reforestation solution work?

MORFO has developed a solution for large-scale ecological restoration of forest ecosystems. We restore areas, mainly concentrated in tropical and subtropical regions such as the Atlantic Forest and the African Equatorial Forest, that were previously forested and have been deforested, becoming unproductive.

Our company's MORFO solution is a multi-stage reforestation process:

1 > Analyses
First of all, data collection via drones and satellites is used to analyze the area to be reforested.

2 > Seed selection and collection‍
Suitable local or even endemic species are selected from an in-house catalog (i.e. previously studied and tested in the laboratory). They are then collected by local communities to best meet the needs of the ecosystem.

3 > Plantation‍
Our drones disperse seeds in capsules that contain all the biological and nutritive elements required for long-term reforestation. A single drone can treat up to 50 hectares per day, with each drone capable of planting 180 capsules per minute on steep, hard-to-reach terrain. This is 50 times faster than a traditional reforestation solution, and without the months of growth in the nursery.

4 > Forestry monitoring
The evolution of plantations is given special attention through monitoring of biomass, biodiversity and carbon stocks, using images taken by drones and satellites.

What does MORFO plant?

We have a growing catalog of 200 species that we select according to reforestation projects, and plant at least 20 local species in each project.

Reforestation is not just about planting individual trees, but about creating entire ecosystems. Promoting species diversity in restoration projects is one of MORFO's priorities. We select the species planted to maximize biodiversity and recreate natural ecosystems by mimicking the stages of forest ecological succession.

How does MORFO help restore biodiversity?

Promoting plant species diversity in our restoration projects is one of our priorities. We select the species planted to maximize biodiversity and recreate the native ecosystem, mimicking the stages of forest ecological succession.

Researching and studying tree species is an intensive R&D task. We work with recognized specialist laboratories, such as the IRD, to improve plantations and survival rates in the different biomes we work in.

Why does MORFO use drones?

> Drones are more efficient
They plant between 20 and 100 times faster than humans. A single drone can process up to 50 hectares per day, planting 180 seed capsules per minute.

>Drones cut costs
They are up to 5 times cheaper to use, not only because of their speed of planting, but also because drone planting avoids the need to structure a nursery and maintain it for several months.

> Drones are safer
They provide access to remote regions and enable planting in areas too dangerous for humans, which is very often the case in the reforestation projects we run.

>But our drones don't replace humans
At every stage of a project, human intervention remains crucial, from terrain analysis to species selection, planting and monitoring ecosystem evolution. Up to 20% of all our projects are carried out by hand.

In which countries does MORFO operate?

MORFO has offices in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Europe (Paris) and Africa (Libreville).

We focus restoration efforts in forest ecosystems in tropical and subtropical zones, mainly in South America and Africa.
