DescriptionAlthough it is well known that sodium arsenite is an effective silvicide, forestry literature contains little information about the minimum quantities of this chemical that are required to kill large cull trees. Such information would be of value because if small quantities of a chemical will produce satisfactory results, small holes or frills in the tree will hold it; and the treatment will be less expensive in both labor and materials than other treatments that require more chemical and larger holes for its placement.
