Title: Long-term impact of aerial application of 2,4,5-T to longleaf pine (Pinus palustris)

Author: Michael, J.L.;

Date: 1980

Source: Weed Science. 28(3): 255-275

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Twenty years after aerial application of 2.24 kg ae/ha of the butoxy ethanol ester of 2,4,5-T [(2,4,5-trichlorophenoxy) acetic acid] to release grass stage longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seedlings, stocking was the same for each of the three treated and control 4-ha plots. Treated plots, however, had significantly greater tree diameter (10%), taller trees (17%), and more merchantable tree volume/ha (40%). Merchantable tree volume difference 20 yr after treatment represent an 8 yr growth advantage for treated plots.

Keywords: Benefit, pine release, herbicide, competition
