"To plant 1 trillion trees, we’ll need 2 trillion seeds."
—Jill Wagner, Head of Forestry
Seed shortages pose one of the largest bottlenecks to ecosystem restoration success. Without temperature-regulated storage conditions, many seeds lose viability within one year of collection.
We’ve built a modular, off-grid seed laboratory, designed to meet the needs of small and medium restoration projects. It contains everything restorationists need to dry, process, and store up to 5 million seeds, enough to restore up to 2,000 hectares (5,000 ac) of degraded land every year. For larger restoration projects, capacity can be increased to store up to 50 million seeds, enough to restore up to 17,000 hectares (42,000 ac) of degraded land every year.
Our partnership development team can help you design a native forest restoration project for your site and region.
