Description: Test plots in a brushfield near Mount Shasta, California, were cleared by bulldozing in 1961, and planted with ponderosa pine seedlings in 1962. Brush regrowth was subjected to varying levels of control by spraying with herbicides. In the first 5 years, brush control definitely promoted the growth of pine seedlings. And this early control also promises to reduce the amount of hazardous brush fuels in the plantations for an indefinite period.

Keywords: Pinus ponderosa, stand establishment, brush control, California
