Genetically Engineered Trees: The New Frontier of Biotechnology
November 04, 2013

This groundbreaking report looks at the recent push for the commercialization of GE trees by biotech, energy, and paper companies and exposes the truth behind industry claims that these GE trees promote "environmental sustainability." Contrary to these industry claims, the report finds that GE trees will actually accelerate the proliferation of large-scale, chemical-centric, monoculture plantations stocked with proprietary GE trees; a lucrative prospect for companies promoting this technology, but not for the environment. This report sounds the alarm about the potential harms that GE trees pose and calls for the exploration of other, truly sustainable alternatives to GE trees before taking this path in the woods.
