DescriptionDescribes a provisional assessment of the effectiveness of applying herbicides to woody competitors between 0.5- and 1.5- inches d.b.h. before underplanting northern red oak. Results suggest that no weed control, i.e., not using herbicides, would require only modest increases in the numbers or initial size of nursery stock needed to obtain a given future stocking goal.
