Dendra Systems enables faster, more effective, more scalable restoration of the world's native forests through specialised data ecology and analytics. Dendra Systems works with mature, regulated industries that already pay to restore native ecosystems and provide full stack ecosystem management, from ultra-high resolution monitoring to detailed environmental reporting and aerial seeding. The company disrupts legacy practices with proprietary data and analytics and aerial drone planting, which scales operations, improves outcomes, reduces costs, and helps quantify improvements. It is the most effective, at-scale way of enabling countries and companies to powerfully offset carbon emissions. Its end-to-end system is designed to help biodiverse ecosystems rehabilitate and thrive.
