ArborGen wants to rise to the top of the forest biotech industry, so they have stacked their corporate team with veterans of the industry. ArborGen, which is expanding its global operations, especially in Brazil, wants to own the genes in tree plantations worldwide.
This has profound implications on forest-dependent communities, considering recent cases of farmers being sued by Big Ag when genetic material they claim to own shows up in someone else's field.
And just as this company has pioneered and expanded a model of agriculture that relies on chemical inputs, monocultures and global trade, ArborGen is continuing this trend in the forest industry. Together, we can stop them from desecrating forests and turning diverse ecosystems into monoculture plantations filled with GE eucalyptus
