Genetically modified trees have been extensively academically explored as ideal feedstocks for pulp/paper and cellulosic ethanol. Novel trees include modifications that increase cellulose content, reduce lignin content, and even change lignin monolignol ratios. However, companies considering investing in these engineered managed forests need to examine technoeconomic feasibility prior to adoption. Specific attention to regulations, site selection, and disease management are compounded by the numerous transgenic tree lines available. Experts in transgenics, forestry, permitting, forest pathology, and biomass characterization can help navigate the complex issues of utilizing these emerging feedstocks.
