Reinvent forestry with our great team

We have a world class organization in scale up, technology and flight, to build a new way to manage forests to help solve the climate and biodiversity crises. And we’re having a lot of fun doing it!

As a hands-on, experimental, and outdoorsy bunch, we focus on getting things done. We're quality-oriented, problem-solving, fact-based, kind, open and ask lots of questions. Sounds like a group you’d have a good time with?

There’s currently about 25 of us and we are looking to hire more experts in mechatronics, software, field testing and more.

About AirForestry

We build cutting edge forestry technology that helps solve the climate and biodiversity crises. Our mission is to contribute to a substantial positive change by creating better forests for everyone.

Forestry is a long-term project. What is harvested today was tended by previous generations, and what is planted today will be harvested by our grandchildren.

AirForestry provides solutions for thinning forests with the help of
electric drones that can harvest trees from the air. AirForestry reduces
the need for access roads, eliminates the consumption of diesel, and
provides a better working environment for those who work in the forest.

We have paying customers and great partnerships. See our main website for more information.
