DescriptionChinese privet (Ligustrum sinense Lour.), a highly invasive nonnative plant, is prevalent in the Southern United States. Chinese privet infestations can hinder regeneration of desirable species, reduce stand productivity, and have other undesirable consequences. A combined mechanical (mulching) and chemical (triclopyr) treatment was applied to Chinese privet in forest stands in Georgia on an experimental basis. The cost of removing Chinese privet was estimated to be $737 per acre when a tracked 110-horsepower mulching machine and a two-person herbicide application crew are employed.
