    Description

    In October, 2002, different combinations of herbicides (Arsenal®, Chopper®, and Forestry Garlon® 4) were applied with a tank-mounted skidder, in an experiment to evaluate their effectiveness for controlling competing vegetation in the understory of a 16-year-old loblolly (Pinus taeda L.) and slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) plantation in Louisiana. Two years after treatment, volume responses are significant for loblolly pine where the understory had been treated with 2 quarts Forestry Garlon® 4 and 48 ounces Chopper®. The best treatment reduced competing vegetation in percent cover and total height. Slash pine has not responded to release treatments.
