This method is effective on trees of all sizes. Foliage Treatments: Foliar spraying is a common method of applying herbicides to brush up to 15 feet tall.

Make applications from early summer to late September, depending on the choice of herbicide. Treatments are least effective during very hot weather and when trees are under severe water stress.

In midsummer, glyphosate damages conifers and brush severely. Imazapyr is active on maple, alder, and other brush as a growth inhibitor. It also damages conifers when applied to foliage during the growing season. Imazapyr is well adapted for trunk injection or spot treatments.

Forestry herbicides are applied at very low rates (2 ounces to 2 quarts per acre) and on a very small percentage of the land annually. Generally, only one application is made over an to year rotation for hardwood regeneration establishment. Forestry herbicides are very low in acute toxicity.

One absorbed, the plant can no longer feed itself. For small weeds, the kill happens quickly. Glyphosate, the main chemical in Round Up, is often sprayed on land as part of the site preparation in order to kill off underbrush. After all trees and other plant life have been removed, the site, is again saturated with chemicals.

The chemical is then transmitted throughout the tree, killing the tree and roots. Chemicals used in these herbicides include triclopyr, picloram, 2,4-D and dichlorprop. Soil Surface.

Cut stump treatment is not recommended where thousands of stems per acre need to be treated or where trees or shrubs cannot be safely felled and piled if needed. Cut stump treatments are an effective method for woody invasive plant control. Controlling woody-stemmed plants that are unwanted in the landscape can become an impossible task.

When mowers, chainsaws, and axes become useless against unwanted trees and shrubs, herbicides are often the most effective and inexpensive means for their control. Here are application techniques, using readily available herbicides, that can be used to control trees and brush.

All treatments were made on 1/acre plots where numerous beech stems of various sizes occurred, from 1 foot tall to large sawtimber. Two herbicides and two diameter treatment limits were evaluated: all trees above 4 inches and all trees above 10 inches in diameter were treated on separate plots using the hack-and-squirt method.

Pesticides and Forestry. Pests are a problem in forests just as they are on farms and in gardens. Pesticides may be used in forests to control weeds, insects, animals, or diseases that can damage trees.

They may be applied by aircraft, ground equipment, or by hand. One of the most popular plant and tree killing chemicals, gardeners and professionals use 2,4-D to eliminate everything from broadleaf weeds to aquatic plants to trees.

2,4-D is dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, which acts as a selective herbicide. The chemical protects crops on the farm and controls weeds and invasive plants at home and in forests.

Crossbow Herbicide will knock down everything from poison ivy to softwoods to bushes, briars and berries. Crossbow Herbicide is a powerful herbicide for woody, brush, and broadleaf plants that leaves grasses unaffected.

Chemical control methods. Cut stump treatment. Cut the plant near the ground and treat the cut surface (cambium or bark ring) immediately with a labeled herbicide.

Remove any berries or reproductive cut stems by chipping, burning, or hauling to a brush dump. Note: Transporting cut stems may spread seeds or reproductive parts.

The trees were large so I used an axe to cut and immediately poured the herbicide in. I had to keep repeating the exercise every couple of weeks for several months before the trees showed signs they were going to die.

young trees, and 3) for site preparation to establish a new stand of trees. Most cut-over areas or new sites require some type of site preparation and/or release for successful tree establishment.

Vegetation control can also be of value when maintaining natural stands of pines or pine-hardwood mixtures. Basal bark spraying is done by spraying a mixture of herbicide and diesel fuel on the lower bark of trees and brush. It works well on trees less than 6 inches in diameter.

It can be done at any time of the year except when the soil is completely saturated with water or frozen. The most common herbicide used in basal bark spray is Remedy.

This wastes the chemical which can be expensive and it can lead to flashback in the soil. Flashback is where the chemical enters the soil around the tree or shrub that you were intending to kill and it kills all plant material in that zone.

Some chemicals can sterilize the soil for years and not allow desired trees to establish and grow. Job Sheet –Brush Management () Page 2 of 3 site, and the time, labor and other resources available to you.

Whenever possible and especially for vines climbing up trees or buildings, a combination of cutting followed by application of concentrated systemic herbicide to rooted, living cut surfaces is likely to be the most effective approach.

Being “free to grow” means that a tree has a good chance of out-growing undesired competing grass and brush.

Options include mechanical, chemical and cultural practices, or a combination of these. Two of the most common mechanical methods of controlling brush in the fence line are a chainsaw and bulldozer.

Chainsaws are good for selectively removing large trees. Protect. Part of the mission of the Alabama Forestry Commission is to guard our forests from harm.

Habitats of importance for the preservation of biodiversity have been excluded from forestry and felling operations, and both living and dead trees have been left in felled areas. Natural regeneration of trees has increased in importance relative to planting nursery-grown seedlings and more attention is paid to pre-serving forest landscapes.
