Take Action: Send an email to STOP a genetically engineered American chestnut tree

December 2023

Take Action to Protect our Forests from Genetically Engineered trees!

On December 8, 2023, The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) announced it is discontinuing its development of this GE tree called “Darling 58” due to unexpected problems.

The researchers at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF), however, says they will continue to seek regulatory approval for the petition that is pending with the USDA.

Write to them today and demand they withdraw the petition and keep our forests safe!

Clicking on this link (or the button below) will take you to the website of the Campaign to STOP GE Trees where you can fill in a form and your email will be sent to SUNY-ESF!

Note: GJEP coordinates, administrates, and fundraises for the Campaign to STOP GE Trees
