International Bulletin #1: October 2023
The global release of genetically engineered (GE or genetically modified) trees is closer than it has ever been. This advancement is a significant concern because the release of GE trees would pose serious threats to forests and other ecosystems, as well as to many local communities and Indigenous peoples. The environmental impacts could be irreversible. This International Bulletin (October 2023) provides critical updates on GE tree development around the world and serves as an update to our 2022 report “The Global Status of Genetically Engineered Tree Development: A Growing Threat“.
