    Description

    Brush competition is one of the more serious obstacles to survival of both planted and naturally established trees in California. Brush has taken over many cutover and burned areas. In the western Sierra Nevada alone, 1.7 million acres of commercial forest land are classified as poorly stocked or non-stocked. All of this area is capable of producing forest trees, but brush dominates most of the ground and greatly hinders efforts by man and nature to reestablish conifers in adequate numbers. If these acres are to produce timber within a reasonable period, the brush must be either eradicated or killed in place. Chemical sprays offer one possibility for killing brush. This report describes the results of several experiments with two selective herbicides tested against five different brush species on the Stanislaus Experimental Forest.
