This sustainable tree plantation technology helps combat climate change in arid conditions with poor quality soils. The 'Cocoon' from Land Life Company based in the Netherlands protects tree saplings with a modern and science-backed method.
The structure's "wick system drip-feeds the seeding roots drops per day, encouraging the roots to reach the subsurface water table" to facilitate tree planting in a sustainable manner. The Cocoon reservoir is manufactured out of a 100% biodegradable material that also contains soil-enriching nutrients. The Cocoon acts as a tree shelter as well, to protect the sapling from a harsh or inhospitable environment, like plant-eating animals and damage caused by sun and wind.
The tree plantation system is also an extremely cost-effective one at $9 USD.
