A few years ago, Spain suffered one of the worst wildfires in its history when a powerful blaze decimated a large part of Alto Tajo Natural Park in Guadalajara Province. To make a significant contribution, LG Spain has employed its advanced products to help the park and the nation to heal.
Last year, LG Spain kicked off its LG Smart Green project with a key objective to bring Alto Tajo Natural Park to its former glory by using technology to help in the reforestation effort. Not only do trees beautify the landscape, they constitute an entire eco-system for many species and soak up excess CO2 in the atmosphere. Since March of this year, LG has planted approximately 2 million seeds throughout the vast park, from which 1.5 million trees are expected to develop. Another 500,000 trees were planted by organizations and individuals involved in the LG Smart Green project. The reforestation effort was carried out with the help of LG technology. Working in partnership with CO2 Revolution, a local startup, LG devised a plan involving a high-tech drone, an LG G8SThinQ smartphone (dubbed LG G8 Smart Green) and a LG gram laptop. The innovative process employed by LG and CO2 Revolution consisted of three steps. First, the smartphone captured information collected during the drone’s scanning flights. Next, the data and images were uploaded to the LG gram laptop which used advanced software and a specially designed algorithm to identify optimal locations to disperse the seeds. Then a CO2 Revolution pilot flew the drone to the target sites using the phone and laptop to plant the seeds.
And Alto Tajo Natural Park is just the beginning. LG hopes to see every Spanish citizen plant one tree and engage their friends and family online using the hashtag #UnaPersonaUnÁrbol (One Person, One Tree) with the goal of seeing 47 million new trees by 2030.
