Researchers Create Supersized Trees

Just as Ian Morgan Arb storms into another busy few months with a wide range of Arboricultural Training Courses running weekly, Experts at Manchester University think that they have found a way to make the demand for good Arborists even higher.

By Altering two genes to accelerate growth in some trees, experts feel that this finding could help crop production and renewable energy.

A researcher at the University said “This needs to be tested but offers a potential way forward for one of the most pressing challenges of the day.”

PXY and CLE are the genes associated with the growth of cells within the tree trunk. Research found that when overstimulated the trees grew twice as fast, with thicker and wider trunk and more leaves.

With accelerated growth of trees and a boost in biomass energy this research could start to make some headway on the effects of Client Change.
