Abstract : An aerial planting concept for forestry applications is briefly described and examples are given of the results obtained during biological and flight experiments with a prototype system. In this system newly-developed, seed-containing planting darts are sequentially ejected from several dispensers installed on a light helicopter, which is also fitted with high-accuracy, short-range, navigational-guidance equipment. Continuing development entails further testing in the field and a more detailed examination of manufacturing aspects.
