Black walnut trees are one of the most valuable species in the United States. The hardwood is used in making quality lumber and veneer and has an added benefit of producing walnuts used in food production. Hardwood trees in general have many other benefits. They provide environmental stabilization as windbreakers protection from watershed and reclamation. The raw materials from the wood are used in cosmetic pharmaceutical and botanical industries. The lumber is used for residential and commercial structures interior furnishings musical instruments and other numerous specialty wood products. Trees are aesthetically pleasing and have the added benefit of conserving energy controlling pollution and providing habitats for animals in urban settings. Because of the high value our society has placed on hardwood trees efforts to maintain and develop genetically resilient hardwood trees to disease nutrient deprivation and deforestation Purdue University researchers have developed a genetically modified black walnut tree that has the advantages of growing faster straighter and stronger. The trees repopulate forests and tree farms quicker saving time and money in hardwood cultivation. This technology will provide an optimized wood for the lumber industry specialty wood products and black walnut trees that will last longer in our urban areas Advantages:-Grow faster straighter and stronger
