Abstract

Abstract. Maintenance of biodiversity is becoming a goal of forest management. This study determined effects of broadcast pine release herbicide treatments on plant species richness, diversity, and structural proportions seven years after treatment. Three study blocks were established in central Georgia. Plots 0.6-0.8 ha in size were planted to loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) in the Winter of 1982-83 and then treated with imazapyr (Arsenal), glyphosate (Roundup), and hexazinone (Velpar L. and Pronone IOG) in 1985.
