If you own or manage pine timberlands in the South, you know only too well that unwanted vegetation can be stubborn when you arc trying to reforest, convert a stand, or improve pine growth by reducing competition. Are you aware. however, that many forestry herbicides are proving effective in eliminating this undesirable vegetation, both before and after pine establishment? You can sometimes even apply the chemicals yourself, although in many other cases only a licensed applicator should use them.
