Trees are an essential resource that we rely upon for a multitude of everyday needs. Meeting the world’s increasing demands, while complying with conservation guidelines requires new arboriculture technology.

Botanists are researching genetically manipulated (transgenic) trees to learn if they are suitable for integration into a natural environment.
