This full-color publication examines the use of forestry labeled herbicides to manage woodland vegetation. Many factors are increasing the need for vegetation management using herbicides including; vegetation interfering with forest regeneration success, poorly planned and executed timber harvesting practices leaving cull trees and undesirable species, declining markets for small diameter wood decreasing our ability to thin overstocked stands, shifting species composition due to high deer impact, and increasing abundance of invasive exotic plants. Additional topics covered include how to choose the right forestry herbicide; forestry herbicide application methods; forestry herbicide toxicity; and using herbicides to meet silvicultural objectives. In an attempt to set aside misconceptions concerning herbicide use in forests, the publication also provides a set of forest herbicide application talking points.
