Court challenge to GM pine trees

Genetically Engineered Trees

A review of regulations covering genetically modified organisms hinges on a High Court case next week challenging approval for GM experiments on our most populous tree, pinus radiata.

The Environmental Protection Authority in April approved an application clearing the way for forest research institute Scion to alter the DNA of pine species using novel technology.

Genetically Engineered "Factory Trees": Sustainable Way Forward or Dangerous Diversion?

Genetically Engineered Trees

Center for Food Safety (CFS) is pleased to offer a new report, Genetically
Engineered Trees: The New Frontier of Biotechnology
(http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/reports/2637/genetically-engineered-t...)
, which explores potential ecological and socioeconomic hazards of
genetically engineered (GE) trees.

As you may know, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is considering whether
to allow unrestricted planting of the first GE forest tree: eucalyptus
engineered by ArborGen to grow in colder climates. If approved, this would

GENETICALLY ENGINEERED TREES ARE TARGETED
