Using forestry herbicides to control woody vegetation: a review of principles and recent research. Presented by David R. Jackson, Penn State Cooperative Extension.
May 20, 2015
Summary/Abstract - Forestry labeled herbicides are a low risk and effective means of controlling undesirable forest vegetation in northern hardwood forestry. They can be used for achieving many objectives including: establishing desirable regeneration, increasing tree growth and timber production, creating and enhancing wildlife habitat, and controlling non-native/invasive plants. This presentation will highlight forestry herbicide application methods, products, and treatment guidelines for controlling interfering vegetation as well as provide an update on a number of herbicide research projects that examined basal bark application rates, frill girdle control of black birch, and beech root sucker control.
