Genetic modification, a process used to change an organism's genes and hence its characteristics, is now being used to improve trees. Through genetic modification, it is possible to create trees that produce more fruit, grow faster, or withstand adverse conditions. Planting genetically modified trees on a large scale promises to bring a number of benefits.

First, genetically modified trees are designed to be harder than natural trees; that is, they are more likely to survive than their unmodified counterparts. In Hawaii, for example, a new pest-resistant species of papaya tree has been developed in response to ringspot virus infestations that have repeatedly damaged the native papaya-tree population. Planting genetically modified papayas haveSS largely put an end to the ringspot problem.

Moreover, genetically modified trees promise to bring a number of economic benefits to those who grow them. Genetically modified trees tend to grow faster, give greater yields—of wood, fruit, or other products—and be hardier. This allows tree farmers to get faster and greater returns on their farming investment and save on pesticides as well.

Finally, the use of genetically modified trees can prevent overexploitation of wild trees. Because of the growing demand for firewood or building timber, many forests around the world are being cut down faster than they can be replaced. Introducing genetically modified trees—designed for fast growth and high yield in given geographic conditions—would satisfy the demand for wood in many of those areas and save the endangered native trees, which often include unique or rare species.

The reading and the lecture are about genetically modified trees.More specifically, in regard to the passage, the writer put forth three benefits associated with the trees modification.The lecturer, however, is quick to point out that those advantages will eventually result in a large number of difficulties. In fact, he believes and addresses in detail the trouble with each claim made in the reading text.

First and foremost, the author of the reading states that genetically restructured trees live longer than their peers.For instance, the creation of the new pest resistant species helps in the eradication of ringspot virus.The lecturer, however, stands in firm opposition to this notion.She states that genetically modified trees are resistant to a specific condition, and the typical non modified are widespread.Besides, trees that are resistive would survive, but because genetically modified trees are constant, therefore climatic conditions will make them go into extinction.

Secondly, the writer feels that farmers will attain profits on their farming investment and also put aside money on pesticides.Again, the speaker addresses this point when she states that the production company in charge will always bill farmers for genetically modified trees.Moreover, every collection of trees automatically attracts additional cost.

Finally, the author brings his argument to a close by suggesting that planting of the trees stops excessive use of wild trees.Not surprisingly, the professor rebutted this claim by contending that planting of trees pose a serious threat because they develop in an uncontrolled manner.On top of that, they can compete for resources such as sunlight and water.
