Successful effort to raise the issue of GE trees in proposed standard

Many thousands of people submitted on the proposed National Environmental Standard –  Plantation Forestry (NES-PF).  A vast majority of the public submissions were particularly focussed on the NES having included GE trees in its mandate. People want these provisions removed, as do we.

There were also some very useful detailed, technical submissions concerned about the inadequacies of the current proposed NES-PF, including the impacts on indigenous biodiversity, sediment controls and fisheries habitat destruction.
