Take Action: Stop GE Trees

December 2020/January 2021

The US government is considering a request to allow the release of genetically engineered (GE or genetically modified) American chestnut trees into US forests. The GE trees could spread from US forests into forests in eastern Canada. Researchers say they will also ask the Canadian government to approve planting this GE tree in Canadian forests.

  1. Individuals can fill in the form at the side of this page to send an instant letter to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada.
  2. Organizations are asked to sign the joint statement: “We, the undersigned organizations, oppose the release of genetically engineered trees into wild forests in the US and Canada.” 
  3. Do you participate with an environmental group or another group with interest in this issue? Share this information with your group, along with our factsheet on GE American chestnut trees. Please contact us to discuss how your organization or community group can support this important campaign.

For more information on the GE American chestnut and GE trees see www.cban.ca/trees or contact us.
