Title: Chemical control of bigleaf maple trees and stump sprouts.

Author: Berntsen, Carl M.;

Date: 1960

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 192, p. 1-9

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Control of bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) has become an important consideration in many western Oregon areas that are managed primarily for Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) and associated conifers. The problem is acute on areas where damaged and defective maples are left after harvest of commercial timber. They sprout vigorously from stump, trunk, and root crown, and interfere with the prompt establishment of a Douglas-fir or mixed conifer stand (fig. 1).
