Description: Herbicides are being used more frequently in the intensively managed forest ecosystems of the southeastern United States. Most of this increased use occurs during site preparation prior to replanting cutover or converted stands. Herbicides provide a cost-effective tool for controlling herbaceous and weed cunpetition which adversely affects pine establishnent and early growth. Herbicides are also useful in minimizing erosion which can affect site productivity and water quality. Since forested watersheds throughout the Sou sources for high quality municipal and danestic drinking water, there has been considerable concern over the potential for water contsnination with herbicide residues.
