Title: Herbicide treaments can improve your forest

Author: Miller, James H.;

Date: 1989

Source: Forest Farmer. 48(5):28-28.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: When you plant a young pine stand after harvest, you mimic nature's seeding of the area. Then we often stand back and let nature take its course. Newly planted seedlings must divide their meager energy on two battlefronts: They must push and weave their roots through the tangle already there. At the same time, they must precariously struggle up through layers of grass, forbs, shrubs, vines and hardwoods.
