Genetically Engineered Trees

Genetically engineered (also called GM or Transgenic) trees pose a major threat to forest biodiversity and to forest peoples’ access to resources. Large monocultures of both GE and non-GE trees are extremely harmful to both ecosystems and biodiversity with negative effects on the survival of forest dependent peoples.
