We would not have to resort to such things as genetic engineering to support our needs if we would start controlling our own population growths. We simply are breeding too much for mother earth, poor mother earth to continue doing so. Should we just let famines or plagues or war do their thing? Let the people who cannot feed, clothe or shelter themselves die off like the days of old? It is so easy to criticize, but without any answers or constructive solutions all I am seeing is...

Well, we wouldn't have to resort to such drastic measures as genetic engineering if people would simply stop breeding so much. Poor mother earth cannot sustain us now without such things. How will we all manage in the future if the population keeps growing? Zero or negative population growth for starters....otherwise, this is what you will get...and by the way people...what company, even the green ones, aren't in it for the profit? Are some of you that naive? sigh....complain all you...

Pulp trees had being planted in Italy for over 50 years I do not see anything wrong with the planting, “perhaps” genetically new versions may grow much quicker and faster. Does any one knows how much of paper in this country is used while other countries paying out of their noses for good paper. Two if you people are concern about fires then you should start focusing on red pine trees or on any pine trees. “Wise up my friends.

before the world lets stop GMO's we.
do not know how these GMO will effect our lives DNA for years to come we know it is wrong on every level to mess with nature why do are we not able to stop monsanto in the courts? we have been fighting for ten years to stop this now we need public outcry to stop wide spread release for commercial use so speak up speak out.

Nice to see more reasons than just a spastic "they aren't natural! noes! 1!". These are good reasons, and because of them I will sign. Their disproportionate use of too much local water, their highly flammable fire risk, their invasive spread once planted and their tendency to harbor a deadly/dangerous fungus that can make both humans and animals sick: all of those reasons together make planting these trees a bad idea. Being genetically engineered to withstand colder temperatures only means...

Being genetically engineered to withstand colder temperatures only means they could spread over the entire usa, and that weather/climate won't keep them from spreading into every state, but the engineering is not actually the biggest problem. Even non-genetically engineered 100% natural eucalyptus has these same risks and problems. It's a problematic plant in the wrong environment, and the usa can't afford to support it. I can tell from the comments though that a lot of people didn't bother to read much farther than the words "genetically modified"....

Corporations are blatently raping nature for profits & thanks to the silence of a bought off media the world seems to be oblivious to it all.

This will only lead to our own death, as our planet goes, we and all living beings will go. We are responsible for the care of this planet.
