Trees are an essential resource that we rely upon for a multitude of everyday needs. Meeting the world's increasing demands, while complying with conservation guidelines requires new arboriculture technology. From a computer at a sawmill, data - including desired tree length and diameter - is sent to harvesting machinery in the forest. Botanists are researching genetically manipulated (transgenic) trees to learn if they are suitable for integration into a natural environment.
