GM-trees (genetically modified trees) are now being pushed out into the environment by the biotech industry. They claim that these trees have such and such benefits when compared to traditional trees. What they do not speak much about though, is that this is a monoculture which is just another huge threat to biodiversity.
Some GM-trees produce poison trough their whole life, some depend on intensive spraying of herbicides. None of this will benefit wildlife.
Did you know that september 21st this year was the international day against tree monocultures.
From Climate Connections website we can read this:
"Across the globe, timber plantations are wreaking havoc on forests and forest dependent communities. Now, to further exacerbate this damage, genetically engineered trees (or GE trees) pose a new and unprecedented threat".
