I’ve always felt that planting trees was simply too much of a non-violent affair. Digging holes, lowering in saplings, filling them with soil — yawn. Where’s the action, the excitement, the military-grade aircraft? It’s also time consuming. Granted, I don’t have nearly the skills this guy does, but the last time I went out planting trees, the best I could do was one every few minutes. Thankfully, somebody figured know how to plant trees right: By enlisting a fleet of a retrofitted C-130 military transport planes to literally aerial bomb forests with new trees, we could plant 900,000 of them in a single day.

See, it turns out that there are all these military planes just idling in hangars across the world — they were designed to drop landmines en masse in enemy territory, but now they’re just collecting rust. There are some 2,500 of these planes in 70 different countries, and it turns out they make for ideal tree-bombers.
