How does morfo analyze land for reforestation?



What to plant?
We select the specific types of plant species to be planted, taking into account the characteristics and needs of the site. Today, our catalog includes over 300 species that have been studied or are currently under investigation.

Where to plant?

In collaboration with local stakeholders, we carefully select the most suitable areas for planting.

How much to plant?
We precisely determine the optimum number of species and density of vegetation to be planted to ensure healthy, balanced vegetation development, taking into account site conditions and planting objectives.

How does morfo select its species?


Once we have identified the best planting conditions for your plot, our team will plant meticulously selected species.


Our methodical approach ensures orderly, efficient implementation at every stage of the project. MORFO drone technology enables planting to be carried out up to 50 times faster than traditional methods, while also being safer.


MORFO currently offers a catalog of 300 seeds. For each project, we select at least 20 adapted species in partnership with recognized laboratories to ensure the best selection for successful ecological restoration: IRD, UFSCar, UFPR, etc.


Our drones disperse seed capsules, developed by our R&D team, for rapid, large-scale reforestation. Up to 20% manual planting is integrated into our projects when conditions allow, supporting the development of NGOs and local players in forest preservation.

Survival rate

By using seed capsules, we increase the survival rate of seeds up to 80% in the laboratory, thus requiring far fewer seeds, which is important in today's context of scarcity. The MORFO solution enables you to restore more hectares of degraded forest.

How does morfo plant with drones?



Number of hectares restored, number of trees planted, ecosystem growth, carbon sequestration... MORFO forest monitoring helps to assess the growth and health of plantations in your reforestation project. They help identify areas with high potential for improvement, and offer opportunities to strengthen the health of the forest ecosystem, notably through targeted new plantations.

Monitoring carried out using various tools

Drone and satellite imagery to assess biomass and biodiversity, thanks to AI. On-site analyses including drone imagery, soil quality and vegetation cover studies.

In-depth monitoring analysis

The initial diagnosis with an inventory of species present and an analysis of the soil and climate. Restoration, biomass and biodiversity monitoring. Carbon stock monitoring. Field photos for ongoing monitoring of the site.

Regular, long-term monitoring

Restoration monitoring lasting from 5 to 30 years, depending on complexity, to ensure sustainable recovery. For the first 3 years, we focus on the initial recovery phase, carrying out semi-annual surveys using drones and field teams.

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.

How do MORFO reforestation drones work?

In our projects, drones are a tool for scaling up on two levels:

>Forest analysis and monitoring

Before planting, we use a variety of analysis methods to study the soils and characteristics of the area to be reforested. Some of these analyses include satellite imagery to obtain an overall view of the area, and drone imagery with more precise resolution for detailed information.

This data is then combined with our species catalog established in the laboratory to produce a planting scheme. The analysis drone can also be used to geolocate the species present at the time of planting and to monitor plant growth after planting.
This drone model makes it possible to differentiate between the different existing forest strata and to accurately monitor the growth of all vegetation.


We use agricultural drones capable of lifting fairly substantial loads and dispersing unique capsules that we have developed with public laboratories and scientists. These drones are large, around 1.50 meters in diameter. With our partners, we have developed release systems adapted to our capsules.

Why use seedpods?

Our seeds are placed in seedpods. These pods contain all the biological and nutritional elements needed for long-term reforestation. We use drones to disperse and plant these seedpods on site, ensuring efficient and sustainable reforestation practices that benefit the environment.

The three main benefits of using seedpods are as follows:‍‍

> Seed protection
Seedpods protect seeds from external factors, preserving their viability.

‍‍‍‍> Feeding during the early stages of growth‍
Seedpods provide essential nutrients to support their needs during the early stages of seedling development.

> Restoration of degraded soils‍
Our method helps to revitalize and revitalize impoverished soils, promoting the overall recovery of ecosystems.

MORFO devotes itself daily to research and development in our in-house laboratories and in collaboration with partners to carefully select the best seeds for each reforestation project. Today, our catalog includes over 200 species that have been studied or are currently under investigation. To be selected, species must meet a minimum of 13 criteria, some of which are mandatory while others are not.

What are MORFO's success rates?

In our laboratory, we achieve survival rates averaging 80% (from 55 to 100% depending on the species). On field, we work with nature, sometimes on very degraded terrain. We aim, by combining our various technologies (capsules, soil analysis, weather forecast monitoring, etc.) to get closer to this percentage rate.

What happens after planting?

We pay particular attention to the growth of plantations, monitoring of biomass, biodiversity and carbon stocks. These analyses enable us to measure the evolution of plant growth and carbon capture. They also enable us to diagnose any problems or low success rates, so that they can be remedied, for example through future planting.

MORFO uses several tools to carry out accurate and regular monitoring: drone and satellite imagery, artificial intelligence and field analyses.

MORFO reforestation monitoring is regular and long-term. It extends over a period of 5 to 30 years. This period varies according to the complexity and scale of the restoration project, as well as the conservation and preservation objectives of the ecosystems.
