DescriptionWe evaluated the first-year survival and growth of 13 bottomland species in several different management treatments replicated at three sites in the Missouri Ozarks. Treatments were: 1) Roundup® site preparation only; and Roundup® site preparation plus a: 2) growing season application of Poast Plus® (a grass-selective herbicide); 3) redtop covercrop; 4) ladino clover cover-crop; or a 5) Virginia wild rye cover-crop. We also compared the resulting structure and composition of competing ground flora at ground level and at 0.625 meters (average tree seedling height).
