Abstract

Exotic and native invasive plants increasingly hinder land management, use, and restoration projects. Chinese and Japanese privet are rapidly becoming major threats to future hardwood culture and currently hinder ROW management throughout the southeastern region. Chinese wisteria occurs as severe, dense isolated infestations in forest stands. Native trumpetcreeper can form dense ground cover under plantations that will require control before reestablishment. The objective of this research was to perform primary screening of forestry herbicides as foliar sprays on these three invasive species to identify efficacious active ingredients for further developmental research and treatment refinement.
