    Description

    In a small-scale test, a silvicide consisting of cacodylic acid was injected during the growing season at dosages recommended by the manufacturer. The treatment did not thin adequately two of three mixed-conifer stands. Ponderosa pine and lower crown classes seemed more susceptible to the silvicide than Douglas-fir and upper crown classes. No flashback was recognized. But bark beetles killed leave trees in one stand.
