Are you involved in the development of an NGO?
There are 2 ways to work with MORFO
Do you have large surfaces to restore in a short space of time? You can trust MORFO to speed up operations while maintaining the quality of the result by restoring for you.
you would like our organizations to work together on a project. We divide responsibilities according to the stages of the project (site preparation, seed collection, planting, site monitoring, etc.).
4 STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL reforestation project
Data collection in the field, via drones and satellites, is used to analyze the area to be reforested.
Seed selection & collection
Suitable local or even endemic species are selected from an in-house catalog (i.e. studied and tested in the laboratory). They are then collected in the region to best meet the needs of the ecosystem.
Site preparation and planting
The area to be reforested is often prepared before planting, to increase the success rate of the project. Then planting takes place. This is carried out using a drone, which can release up to 180 seed capsules per minute. It can also be carried out, in part, by hand.
Monitoring the growth of trees and vegetation
The evolution of plantations receives particular attention through the monitoring of biomass, biodiversity and carbon stocks, using images taken by drones and satellites.

The site being restored is a former sugarcane plantation whose yields are too low due to soil degradation.
4 REASONS TO CALL ON MORFO
We have developed drone reforestation technology, using seed capsules, to restore forests rapidly and on a large scale. Nevertheless, when accessibility and safety conditions allow, MORFO includes up to 20% manual planting in its restoration projects. Through this commitment, we are helping to structure and grow local forest NGOs and groups. Find out more about MORFO.
MORFO currently offers a catalog of 200 seeds, with a target of 1000 species by 2030. For each project, we select at least 20 adapted species using data analyzed from the field, drone and satellite. Our partner laboratories ensure the best selection for successful ecological restoration.

Thanks to the use of capsules and drones, we increase the survival rate of seeds (80% on average under real conditions in our laboratories). In a context of seed shortage, we need far fewer seeds. The MORFO technique therefore enables us to restore more hectares.

Thanks to in-depth analyses, we draw up the optimum reforestation plan in collaboration with local stakeholders. Our methodical approach ensures orderly and efficient implementation at every stage of the project.
