The encroachment of weed trees on southern forest land is a major land-management problem; therefore, considerable research has been conducted to find efficient methods of control. Killing defective trees by girdling has been practiced for a number of years, but during the past decade the application of herbicides has proven effective. In recent years, special injectors were developed for applying herbicides to individual tree trunks.
