"They also show that, using 3D bioprinting techniques, they can grow plant material in shapes, sizes, and forms that are not found in nature and that can’t be easily produced using traditional agricultural methods."

I don't think these egg-heads fully realize that trees grow the way they do for many reasons. If you change the shape of a tree, you've undoubtedly changed something else in the ecosystem.

What's wrong with the trees that grow naturally? Does everything need to be "engineered"?
