Public and Scientific Doubts Cause Confidence in GE Trees to Decline

Summerville, SC— The genetically engineered tree (GE tree) company ArborGen, a joint project of timber corporations International Paper, MeadWestvaco and Rubicon, decided suddenly yesterday to change its plans and not sell shares in ArborGen publicly on the NASDAQ exchange. [1]

U.S. Industry Shows Little Interest In Genetically Modified Apple

Genetically Engineered Trees

As consumer demand for fresh-cut and value-added products steadily increased, apple marketers rushed to solve the ”browning” problem.

Processors found the answer with coatings like NatureSeal, which inhibit browning for weeks, and the sliced apple market has been a success story at retail and foodservice for the past 10 years.

U.S. industry shows little interest in genetically modified apple

It appears U.S. apple grower-shippers are not enthusiastic about a genetically modified anti-browning variety a Canadian biotechnology firm is attempting to introduce.

Oxford To Get Biotech Trees

Genetically Engineered Trees

The Triangle is the new testing ground for a major push to promote the responsible use of biotech trees.

The Institute of Forest Biotechnology, a Cary nonprofit, plans to plant genetically engineered trees next month in Oxford.

The trees will be the first grown under a just-released set of guidelines developed by the institute partly to ease any fear that the increasing interest in biotechnology trees could cause more harm than good. The institute was spun out of the N.C. Biotechnology Center, which provides financial support.

New Zealand Government Support For GE Trees Contradicts Clean Green Image

Today's Environmental Risk Management Authority (ERMA) hearing at the Novotel Hotel in Rotorua to consider the application by Crown Research Institute Scion to field trial thousands of genetically engineered (GE) trees is a farce according to the Soil & Health Association of New Zealand.

Government has put $10.8 million science funding into the project and with pro-GE forestry interests actively lobby's Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and international forums such as the Convention of Biological Diversity and the World Trade Organisation along with the USA, for acceptance of GE forestry.

Red Flags Raised About Potential Negative Impacts of Proposed Large-Scale Release of Genetically Engineered Trees in the U.S.

Washington, DC-- While the U.S. Supreme Court hears its first-ever case involving a genetically modified organism, alarms are sounding over the proposed planting of more than a quarter of a million genetically engineered (GE) eucalyptus trees in the U.S., and transgenic trees are being globally condemned.
