Description: The cost and benefits derived from controlling non-woody competitors in pine planations were reviewed. Cost considerations included both the capital cost and biological cost that may be incurred when weed control treatments are applied. Several methods for reducing the cost of herbicide treatments were explored. Cost reduction considerations included adjustments in chemical rates and the amount of ground area that needs to be treated to increase survival and growth based on soil, plant, climate and chemical characteristics of the site.
Keywords: Shortleaf pine, Pinus echinata, southern pine, management, weed control, herbicides, economics
