Forests make life on Earth possible.
Yet researchers and corporations are trying to get permission to release unproven and risky genetically engineered (GE) trees into wild forest ecosystems and new industrial plantations. Releasing GE trees on a large scale is a dangerous and irreversible experiment.
There are no long-term risk assessments to understand the impacts of releasing GE trees into the environment, and geneticists warn such assessments are not possible with trees that live hundreds of years.
GE trees would not protect nature, they would replace it.
Please join the effort to protect forests and the communities that depend on them from the unpredictable and irreversible threats of GE trees.
Please donate today!
World renowned geneticist Dr. David Suzuki explains the dangers of GE trees:
"We have no control over the movement of insects, birds and mammals, wind and rain that carry pollen. GM trees, with the potential to transfer pollen for hundreds of miles carrying genes for traits including insect resistance, herbicide tolerance, sterility and reduced lignin, thus have the potential to wreak havoc throughout the world’s native forests...
The rush to apply these ideas is absolutely dangerous because we don't have a clue what the long-term impact of our manipulations is going to be."
