Scientists ask to plant GM trees

Date : 9th August 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Scientists have applied to plant a group of genetically modified trees on land owned by the Forestry Commission. University of Southampton researchers want to establish a settlement of GM poplar trees for biofuel research. The Forestry Commission confirmed the application, but said no decision had been taken yet. The plantation would be the first attempt to cultivate GM trees in the UK since 1999, when activists destroyed 115 plants in Berkshire.
