    Description

    Manually applied release treatments with herbicides have been increasing in use over the past decade in forests of the southeastern U.S.. Both industrial and non-industrial forest land managers are employing directed foliar sprays and basal sprays of herbicides. Innovations of these standard application methods utilize lower volumes, better nozzles, and improved backpack sprayers that increase worker productivity. Currently registered herbicides have greater control over a wider range of species than those previously used and are effective over a wider application window (Miller 1990a; 1990b), and safer for the applicator and the environment (USDA Forest Service 1984).
