ArborGen does not undertake any research into GE trees in NZ

The GE Free NZ press release “Alarm Bells Ring Over Threat of GE Trees” published yesterday on Scoop (as below) makes a number of statements that are factually incorrect with regard to ArborGen and its business.

ArborGen does not undertake any research into GE trees in New Zealand. It does not grow GE trees at Te Teko or any of its other New Zealand nurseries. Any research that ArborGen does on GE trees outside New Zealand strictly follows all legal requirements of the particular jurisdiction.
