    Description

    Foliage injury and over-all tree damage to ponderosa pine plantations from aerial sprays of 2,4,5-T in 1965 were evaluated. Damage in 1966 was compared to tree growth from 1966 to 1968. The herbicide treatment caused above-normal damage to young trees when applied in September in a year with above-average summer precipitation and freezing weather soon after treatment. In the second year after spraying, the damaged pines improved greatly in vigorand appearance. And by the third year, their height growth was about the same as the undamaged trees. Recovery was more complete and control of competing brush was more effective in young plantations than in older ones.
