Imagine that, a drone dropping life instead of launching death.

Maybe multiple "units" per pod?? I don't know. Also:

The engineers estimate the method is 10 times faster and 20 percent cheaper than hand planting,

How is this only 20% cheaper than hand planting? Have the drones unionized??

This assumes every germinated seed dropped from a drone actually grows into a tree. They'll be lucky if 1 in 100 does.
