Early Monday morning, activists from around the Southeast and as far north as Maine converged on the global headquarters of genetically engineered tree giant ArborGen to tell them in no uncertain terms that they must tear down the walls of secrecy regarding their GE loblolly pines and eucalyptus trees and dissolve and discontinue their research and development.
Monday’s action was but a small representation of the global public rejection of GE trees. In 2015 alone, more than a quarter of a million (269,867) people have signed on in rejection of genetically engineered trees.
